It was put into the mails and postmarked the next day at the New York City carrier department.

VERY FINE. THIS IS BELIEVED TO BE THE ONLY PERFORATED 1857 ONE-CENT STAMP SHOWING PART OF THE PLATE 4 NUMBER AT LEFT. A GREAT RARITY.

The Neinken book (p. 277) states that No stamp, imperforate or perforated, showing the imprint and the plate number ‘4’ from the left pane has ever been recorded.” He also notes that apart from this stamp there are only two other perforated examples known from this same position, but that both show only a small part of the imprint. This is, therefore, the only perforated example which shows any part of the left plate number.

Illustrated in Neinken book (p. 278). Ex Neinken and Wagshal. With 2011 P.F. certificate (Image)

FINE. THIS IS THE ONLY REPORTED PERFORATED STAMP FROM THIS POSITION SHOWING THE END OF THE LEFT IMPRINT. A GREAT RARITY.
