4c Pan-American, Center Inverted (296a). Original gum which is only lightly hinged, fresh and bright colors, nearly perfect centering with wide and balanced margins
The 4c Pan-American Invert was a special printing and not regularly issued. Examples were distributed through two official channels, and the gum on the majority of stamps without “Specimen” overprint was disturbed. In fact, because the stamps were removed from mounting paper, they are generally thinned or have seriously disturbed gum. The example offered here, with near-perfect centering and in pristine condition, is a rare exception.
