1c 1851-56 Issue (Scott 5-9)
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
1392   Image1c Blue, Ty. I (5). Position 7R1E, full margin at top to just barely in at bottom plumes and side ornaments, beautiful bright Plate 1 Early color, neat strike of Mobile Ala. circular datestamp

FRESH AND VERY FINE. A RARE SOUND EXAMPLE OF POSITION 7R1E -- THE SEVENTH STAMP IN THE RIGHT PANE OF PLATE 1 EARLY -- THE ONLY ONE OF THE 1,000 POSITIONS USED TO PRINT IMPERFORATE ONE-CENT STAMPS THAT SHOWS THE COMPLETE DESIGN (TYPE I).

The published census compiled by Jerome S. Wagshal (available at our website at http://siegelauctions.com/dynamic/census/5/5.pdf ) 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. This stamp has not been offered to the market since the consignor purchased it in a Siegel auction in 1969.

1393   Image1c Blue, Ty. Ib (5A). Positions 4-6R1E, horizontal strip of three contiguous Type Ib positions, large top sheet margin, other sides full to just in, wonderful bright Plate 1 Early color, neat strikes of "New Haven Ct. -- Nov." circular datestamp, vertical crease and scissors-cuts mostly between right stamps, left stamp thin spots and faint vertical crease

FINE-VERY FINE APPEARANCE. AN IMPORTANT 1851 ONE-CENT ISSUE MULTIPLE FROM THE TOP ROW OF PLATE ONE EARLY, COMPRISING THREE RARE TYPE Ib POSITIONS, INCLUDING 6R1E, ONE OF THE TWO BEST EXAMPLES OF TYPE Ib. THIS STRIP CONTAINS THE LARGEST NUMBER OF TYPE Ib POSITIONS KNOWN IN A SINGLE USED MULTIPLE.

Type Ib was produced only as an imperforate stamp. Six positions on Plate 1 Early furnished stamps qualifying as Type Ib -- Positions 3-6R and 8-9R -- distinguished by the complete design at top and nearly complete design at bottom. When first entered on the plate, these six positions (as well as 7R1E) had the complete design at top and bottom. However, unlike 7R, small portions of the bottoms were ironed out when the entries were made below them. Positions 6R and 8R had less of the bottom erased than the other Type Ib positions, and for this reason they are more desirable examples of the type. Although Positions 3-6R1E could form a strip of four, no such multiple has been recorded in used condition. Only the original-gum block from Positions 4-9/14-15R1E (Wagshal Census 5-UNC-002) contains a larger number of Type Ib positions than this strip.

1394   Image1c Blue, Ty. II-Ib-Ib (7-5A-5A). Positions 2-4R1E, horizontal strip of three, left stamp Type II, right pair Type Ib, large margins to in at top, brilliant color, bold strikes of grid cancel, right stamp small thin spot, center stamp small natural inclusion and tiny toned spot at bottom right, faint pressed-out crease between left stamps is barely visible even in fluid

FINE APPEARANCE. AN EXTREMELY RARE STRIP OF THREE FROM THE TOP ROW OF PLATE ONE EARLY, CONTAINING TWO TYPE Ib STAMPS AND A TYPE II STAMP. THIS IS THE FIRST STRIP OF THREE FROM THESE POSITIONS WE HAVE OFFERED SINCE KEEPING COMPUTERIZED RECORDS.

Type Ib was produced only as an imperforate stamp. Six positions on Plate 1 Early furnished stamps qualifying as Type Ib -- Positions 3-6R and 8-9R -- distinguished by the complete design at top and nearly complete design at bottom. When first entered on the plate, these six positions (as well as 7R1E) had the complete design at top and bottom. However, unlike 7R, small portions of the bottoms were ironed out when the entries were made below them.

Only three positions from the top row of the right pane furnish Type II stamps, which are noticeably more complete at top. There are only two possible places that will yield combination pairs -- Positions 2-3R1E and 9-10R1E.

1396   Image1c Blue, Ty. Ib (5A). Position 8R1E, large margins to barely in at bottom, pretty shade nicely complemented by blue grid cancel, tiny thin speck at bottom, tiny toned spot

FINE APPEARANCE. A SCARCE EXAMPLE OF THE 1851 ONE-CENT TYPE Ib FROM PLATE ONE EARLY, FROM ONE OF THE TWO POSITIONS THAT FURNISHED THE BEST TYPE Ib EXAMPLES.

Type Ib was produced only as an imperforate stamp from Plate 1 Early. Six positions on Plate 1E furnished stamps qualifying as Type Ib -- Positions 3-6R and 8-9R -- distinguished by the complete design at top and nearly complete design at bottom. When first entered on the plate, these six positions (as well as 7R1E) had the complete design at top and bottom.

1397   Image1c Blue, Ty. Ia (6). Position 96L4, large margins to barely touched at upper right, deep rich color on bright paper, neat strike of large Boston "Paid" grid

VERY FINE AND CHOICE. A BEAUTIFUL SOUND EXAMPLE OF THE IMPERFORATE 1851 ONE-CENT TYPE Ia, WHICH CLEARLY SHOWS THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE TYPE.

Stamps printed from Plate 4 were issued in April, May and briefly in June 1857 before perforations were introduced. The relatively small number of imperforate Plate 4 stamps issued during this period explains the rarity and desirability of any of the imperforate stamp types produced from this plate (Ia, Ic, II, III and IIIa). The extremely rare Type Ia, showing the full design at bottom, was furnished only by 18 of the 200 subjects on Plate 4 (the remaining two bottom-row positions were sub-type Ic). (Image)

1398   Image1c Blue, Ty. Ia (6). Position 92L4, large margins on sides to just in at top, enormous bottom margin clearly shows the key design characteristics, rich color, two neat penstroke cancels leave design clearly visible

A FINE EXAMPLE OF THE 1851 ONE-CENT TYPE Ia IMPERFORATE.

Despite this type originating in the bottom row, and therefore with no stamps below it, examples showing wide margins at bottom are very much the exception.

With 2010 P.F. certificate. Scott Retail with non-pen cancel $13,000.00. Considering the fact that a light pen cancel leaves the design characteristics unmasked, the reduced Scott value for a pen-cancelled No. 6 seems unjustified. (Image)

1399   Image1c Blue, Ty. Ic (6b). Position 91R4, three large margins showing plumes at bottom, ample top margin, two pen strokes and rim of circular datestamp, crease at right, otherwise Very Fine example of this rare type, this stamp from the bottom row is an F Relief position, but the right plume is not quite complete, which distinguishes it from Type Ia positions in the same row (Image)
