United States 1917-29 Issues
1922 Rotary Perf. 11, 1c green, unused without gum, exceptionally well centered, tiny corner perforation crease at lower left, still v.f., with 2009 PFC. It is believed that fewer than 20 exist in any unused state (a small quantity of 1c Rotary Press stamps was perf. 11 at the end of 1922, using remainder sheets from the earlier experimental printings that were normally perforated in 10 gauge or 10/11 compound gauge. Its existence as a perf. 11 variety was discovered in 1936, and the stamp received its Scott's Catalogue listing in 1938. Most of the recorded copies of Scott's 544 are off-center or have been damaged, the result of poor production standards and mishandling)
