listed as "recut once at top and twice at bottom" by Siegel in auction catalog upcoming end of month. and possibly on PSE cert but I don't have it to review.
grade 98 by PSE

Doesn't seem correct regarding the recut. I'm trying to collect top row plate 1L and the stamp caught my interest when I saw big margin at top.

rgstamp, The position is 3R1L, which is not officially recut at top. The cancels cover up a lot of plating markings, but there are enough visible to match it to 3R1L. I confirmed it at Richard DoPorto's site:

Classic,
Thanks for plating. I checked Doporto and concur with you. Top row stamps are not recut on top and I was pretty sure this was top row.
Matches 3R1L no doubt. I need this one for my collection but a grade 98 likely out of my price range!

You're welcome. The inking on this one is weak, I must say.

Impression/ink definitely a little weak and cancel a little heavy, but 98 graded stamps can be pricey!!

Typical worn plate impression. Much better examples can be found without having to get stupid. Wait a minute... isn't it supposed to be hard to find one better???

Bad on Siegel. The unmistakable double recut at bottom combined with the complete top ornaments and guide dot at UR clearly identify this as top row Plate 1 Late, so the question of whether or not the top line shows a recut should have been moot.
