1406 ogbl Image1c Blue, Ty. II-II/II-II/III-IIIA (7-7/7- 7/8-8A). Positions 79-80/89-90/99-100R2, block of six containing Position 99R2, original gum, h.r. at top, huge margins to just in at top, including bottom right corner sheet margins, Position 89R2 with pronounced double transfer, vertical crease affects right stamps, top left stamp sealed tear at top, the most important stamp (bottom left, Position 99R2) is completely sound

VERY FINE-EXTREMELY FINE. AN EXTREMELY RARE ORIGINAL-GUM BLOCK OF SIX FROM THE BOTTOM RIGHT CORNER OF THE RIGHT PANE OF PLATE 2. THIS PHENOMENAL MULTIPLE CONTAINS THE ONLY TWO STAMPS ON THE PLATE THAT ARE NOT TYPE II. IT ALSO CONTAINS TWO OF THE MOST PRONOUNCED DOUBLE TRANSFERS ON ANY CLASSIC UNITED STATES PRINTING PLATE, ONE OF WHICH IS THE FAMOUS POSITION 99R2. A MULTIPLE OF THE HIGHEST ORDER OF RARITY.

Plate 2 was made in late 1855, and consists of 198 stamps that are Type II, one position that is Type III (99R2) and one that is Type IIIA (100R2).

Guide dots were used to correctly lay out the spacing for the plate. According to the Neinken book, Positions 79 and 89 were transferred perfectly using their guide dots. However, the guide dot to the south-east of Position 88R2, which was used to align the single B Relief for Position 99R2, was placed far out of line. The misplaced dot was accidentally used and the bed of the press was moved too far, resulting in the bottom part of the A Relief being transferred into the bottom part of Position 89 (and in the margin below this position) by mistake. "The original entry of Position 99R was out of place and so it was erased or burnished out, but seemingly no attempt was made to erase the parts of the A Relief transferred into the bottom of Position 89R."

When the fresh entry was made in Position 99R a full transfer of the design was not possible without running into the error in Position 89R. The position was therefore short transferred at top, and apparently also at bottom, creating the finest example of Type III found on any plate (see pp. 183-184 of Neinken book).

With copy of 1981 P.F. certificate. From our 1981 Rarities sale and offered to the market for the first time in 31 years. Scott Retail as block of four of No. 7 and pair of these positions (Image)

1407   Image1c Blue, Ty. III, Position 99R2 (8). Huge margins to full, including sheet margin at bottom, deep rich color, light strike of grid cancel leaves the type characteristics clearly visible, small filled-in thin spot, faint vertical crease, slight toning at top

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A SCARCE FOUR-MARGIN EXAMPLE OF THE 1851 IMPERFORATE ONE-CENT TYPE III FROM POSITION 99R2. THIS POSITION PRODUCED THE BEST EXAMPLE OF TYPE III, WITH THE WIDEST BREAKS AT TOP AND BOTTOM.

Plate 2 was made in late 1855, and consists of 198 stamps that are Type II, one position that is Type III (99R2) and one that is Type IIIA (100R2).

1408   Image1c Blue, Ty. III (8). Huge margins to full incl. part of adjoining stamp at right, rich color on bright paper, unobtrusive strike of circular datestamp, clear breaks at both top and bottom

EXTREMELY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL EXAMPLE OF THE 1851 ONE-CENT TYPE III IMPERFORATE, WITH WIDE MARGINS, WONDERFUL COLOR AND IN SOUND CONDITION.

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. (Image)
