FINE-VERY FINE. A RARE COMPLETE SET OF PANES OF 100 OF THE 1907 JAMESTOWN ISSUE.

This set amply demonstrates the narrow spacing between stamps, which led to difficulties in perforating and a dearth of centered copies. For some reason, every pane of the 5c that we have encountered does not have the selvage at right.. Scott Retail as 2c and 5c Mint N.H. plate blocks and singles and 1c as all hinged (which they are not) (Image Magnifier)
