2011 Rarities of the World continued...

Special Delivery thru Officials
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
125 og Image10c Blue, Special Delivery (E4). Top imprint and plate no. 77 strip of three, outer stamps Mint N.H., deep rich color on bright paper

VERY FINE IMPRINT AND PLATE NUMBER STRIP OF THE 10-CENT 1894 UNWATERMARKED SPECIAL DELIVERY ISSUE WITH TWO MINT N.H. STAMPS.

Only one plate number was used for this issue -- Plate 77. Less than a half-dozen full plate blocks are known. This imprint and plate number strip of three, in sound condition and with two Mint N.H. stamps, should be considered very desirable.

With 2010 P.F. certificate. Scott Retail as Mint N.H. and hinged singles (Image)

126° nh Image1c Deep Brown, Special Printing (J8). Mint N.H., s.e. at right, radiant color and detailed impression

FINE. A RARE MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE ONE-CENT POSTAGE DUE SPECIAL PRINTING.

The 1c, 2c and 3c are undoubtedly the rarest values of the American Bank Note Co. Postage Due Special Printings, although the sold quantities in the official records are relatively high. William E. Mooz, in an article on the 1c appearing in Chronicle No. 170, May 1996, offers evidence to support his theory that the actual number of true Special Printings sold was significantly lower than the reported figures. For the 1c, Mooz estimates 500 sold, but it is possible that as many as 400 purchased by G. B. Calman were destroyed. It is widely accepted that nearly 9,000 1c stamps sold as Special Printings were actually regular issues.

EXTREMELY FINE. A SPECTACULAR AND EXTREMELY RARE PLATE NUMBER BLOCK OF TWELVE OF THE 10-CENT 1884 RED BROWN POSTAGE DUE.

128 nh Image1c Vermilion (J29). Mint N.H., brilliant color and fresh, well-centered for this early Bureau issue

A VERY FINE AND EXCEEDINGLY RARE STAMP TO FIND IN MINT NEVER-HINGED CONDITION.

As an indication of rarity, the Zoellner collection contained a hinged example, because years of searching failed to uncover a suitable Mint N.H. copy. We have offered only six Mint N.H. examples since keeping computerized records.

129 nh Image50c Deep Claret (J37). Mint N.H., rich color, wide and well-balanced margins

VERY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL AND RARE MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 50-CENT 1894 POSTAGE DUE ISSUE IN THE DEEP CLARET SHADE

The 50c 1894 Unwatermarked Bureau Postage Due Issue is notorious for its typically poor centering. The combination of centering and pristine never-hinged gum makes this example very desirable. We have offered only four other Mint N.H. singles since keeping computerized records.

With 2004 P.F. and 2009 P.S.E. certificates (Fine-Very Fine 75, SMQ $2,400.00) (Image)
