1851-56 Issue
Lot Sym. Lot Description
12 image1c Blue, Ty. Ib (5A). Position 6R1E, large top sheet margin, large margin at right, just touching at upper left and slightly in at bottom, wonderful bright early shade and proof-like impression, grid cancel

VERY FINE EXAMPLE OF POSITION 6R1E, ONE OF THE TWO POSITIONS THAT FURNISHED THE BEST TYPE IB EXAMPLES, SHOWING THE COMPLETE DESIGN AT TOP AND NEARLY COMPLETE DESIGN AT BOTTOM.

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 burnished away. 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.

16 ng image1c Blue, Ty. III (8). Position 69L4, unused (no gum), large to huge margins incl. part of adjoining stamp at bottom and showing clear characteristics of the type, deep rich color

EXTREMELY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL UNUSED EXAMPLE OF THE IMPERFORATE 1851 ONE-CENT TYPE III. A SCARCE ISSUE IN UNUSED CONDITION WITH SUCH WIDE MARGINS.

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) have small breaks in at least one line. The example offered here, with wide breaks in both lines, is a great rarity

A search of our computerized records revealed an amazing fact -- we have only offered one example with original gum, and one unused example without gum, since keeping computerized records over ten years ago.
