Does anyone have any Info why there is no Perfs on the Left Side, and what looks to be like a violet line on the very left edge is?

Any Info is appreciated.

All of the older US stamp issues come with straight edge varieties -- they just come from the edge of the sheet.

US collectors don't like them very much, presumably because of the obsession with centering.

It seems like to me, on this Particular stamp, the sheets and all other info/photos I researched all have perfs.
If anyone knows of a photo of a 5 Cents winged globe that is similar to the one I posted please let me know.

Net_Stamp,

Your stamp, C12, was printed on a flat plat press in press-sheets of 200, and cut along the inked guidelines into panes of 50 for retail sale. Your stamp is identical to those in the left-hand column of the pane below and contains a natural straight edge and part of the guide line. Very common. Borrowed from eBay:




In contrast, C16 was printed on a rotary press also in press-sheets of 200 cut into panes of 50 for retail sale. One obvious visual difference is the selvage on all 4 sides of these rotary-printed pane, thus all C16 stamps are fully perforated. Borrowed from eBay:

Net stamp, if you own a Scott catalog ( a must for US collecting ) the introduction explains this thing. Also this is asked about once a week - you can use the "search" function on the top of every page in this forum
