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. Very few stamps with white gum survived the tropical climate, as sheets glued together and was then officially re-gummed with either yellow or brown gum at the pharmacies in St. Thomas and Christiansted.

Thus, when bringing the letter to the counter af the post office, the clerk noted the franco marking, and sender was obliged to pay the missing 2 sk. - and then an additional stamp of 2 sk. lineperforation 12 1/2 1864-issue added. An extremely rare postal history item.
