2c - Deep Rose - Type Ia
There is a shading line in the first curve of the ribbon above the left "2"
and in the second curve of the ribbon above the right "2"
Shading of toga button is heavy, all the lines are stronger

Flat Plate  - Imperf. - Unwatermarked - Scott #482A - 1916
The imperforate 2ยข type Ia was printed specifically to fill an order by the Schermack Company,
who then applied their distinctive oblong perforations to the entire supply. Most were
then dispensed by poorly calibrated vending machines that, more
often than not, cut the perforations off on one side or the other.

Because the Bureau of Engraving gave no advance notice regarding this special printing, collectors were not
aware of it until much later. Consequently, virtually none went into the hands of
contemporary collectors and only about 40 examples are estimated to have survived
Of these, one is mint, the rest are used. The used consist of one pair, three covers
and the rest are singles.
