3 CENTS carmine WHITE GUM, 1856, Plate I, position 99, burelage Ia. This is one of the few and major significant plate flaws with large colored spot in lower right spandrel just above S and the typical uneven S-frame line from a margin stamp. Distinctly canceled with mute 5-ring canceller. Despite a small thin spot a very attractive example of this rare stamp.
