2012 Rarities of the World continued...

1851-56 Issue
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
71°   Image1c Blue, Ty. I (5). Position 7R1E, clear margins at sides, cut in at top and bottom but still can be plated to Position 7R1E, deep rich color, bold strike of blue Philadelphia (Nov. 5) circular datestamp

POSITION 7R1E -- THE SEVENTH STAMP IN THE RIGHT PANE OF PLATE 1 EARLY -- IS THE ONLY ONE OF THE 1,000 POSITIONS USED TO PRINT IMPERFORATE ONE-CENT STAMPS THAT SHOWS THE COMPLETE DESIGN (TYPE I). A GREAT RARITY.

The published census compiled by Jerome S. Wagshal contains at least 98 unduplicated records of Scott 5. There are probably no more than ten examples existing outside of the Wagshal census population. Therefore, the 1c 1851 Type I is the rarest of all United States stamps issued regularly prior to the 1868 Grills.

Wagshal Census No. 5-CAN-046. Illustrated in the census as part of a strip of three on cover with a red star carrier marking. Ex Fortgang. With 2012 P.S.E. certificate (F 70) (Image)

73°   Image1c Blue, Ty. III, Position 99R2 (8). Positions 99-100R2, horizontal pair, left stamp Type III, right stamp Type IIIa, large margins to just in including part of adjoining stamps at top and left, deep rich color, light strikes of circular datestamp, creases affect both stamps, right stamp small thin spot

FINE APPEARANCE. A SCARCE EXAMPLE OF THE 1851 IMPERFORATE ONE-CENT TYPE III FROM POSITION 99R2, WHICH FURNISHED THE BEST EXAMPLE OF TYPE III. IT IS ESPECIALY DESIRABLE IN A PAIR WITH THE TYPE IIIa STAMP, AS THESE ARE THE ONLY TWO POSITIONS ON PLATE 2 WHICH WERE NOT TYPE II.

Type III is defined by breaks in the outer lines at both top and bottom. Many Type III stamps have breaks that were created or enlarged by plate wear. Since the wear occurred over a period of time, a majority of stamps of this type (both unused and used) has small breaks in at least one line. The most notable exception is Position 99R2. According to the Neinken book, "The 99R2 stamp is a fresh entry, that was short transferred both at top and bottom, over an original entry that had been erased... The reason that 99R2 is the finest example of Type III is because of its very short transfer at top and at bottom, giving us the wide breaks in these lines." (p. 184).

Plate 2 consists of 98 Type II positions. The only two stamps on the plate to yield other types are the positions offered here.

With 1956 P.F. certificate. Listed but unpriced as a pair from Plate 2. Scott Retail as singles. (Image)

74   Image1c Blue, Ty. III (8). Plate 4, large even margins all around, deep rich color and detailed impression showing clear breaks at both top and bottom (the characteristic of the type), light strike of circular datestamp cancels

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THE IMPERFORATE ONE-CENT TYPE III, WHICH HAS BEEN GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E. A MAGNIFICENT STAMP IN EVERY RESPECT.

Type III is defined by breaks in the outer lines at both top and bottom. Many Type III stamps have breaks that were created or enlarged by plate wear. Since the wear occurred over a period of time, the majority of stamps of this type (both unused and used) has small breaks in at least one line. This stamp is notable both for its overall condition and also for the clear breaks which are evident at both top and bottom.

Ex Tahoe. P.S.E. encapsulated (XF-Superb 95, SMQ $10,500.00). Only three have graded higher to date. (Image)

75   Image1c Blue, Ty. II-II-IIIa (7-7-8A). Positions 98-100L1E, horizontal strip of three, Position 100L1E with small break in outer line at top (Type IIIa) and right interpane margin showing trace of centerline, ample to large margins at top and bottom, just barely in at left, bright shade complemented by three strikes of red "Paid 3" in circle cancel, crease and tiny tear in stamp at left, toned spots

AN EXTRAORDINARY ONE-CENT 1851 ISSUE MULTIPLE FROM PLATE ONE EARLY, COMBINING FOUR ELEMENTS OF RARITY INTO A VISUALLY STUNNING PIECE.

The confluence of rare elements in this one strip is astounding. Sheet-margin multiples are rare. Those showing part of the centerline are rarer. Those with unusual cancellations are even rarer. Finally, any example of Position 100R from Plate 1 Early that has the break in the outer line at top is exceedingly rare (see Neinken book, page 73). To have a strip that combines all four elements of rarity into one defies the odds.

Ex Neinken and Wagshal. With 2010 P.F. certificate (Image)
