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.

EXTREMELY FINE. A MAGNIFICENT USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1851 ONE-CENT TYPE IIIa IMPERFORATE WITH THE CENTERLINE FROM PLATE ONE EARLY.

Plate 1 Early stamps showing the centerline are rare. According to the Neinken chart, only three of the centerline positions on Plate 1 Early are Type IIIa -- 40L, 51R and 71R -- and this position (71R) shows a wide break in the outer line at top. From a purely statistical perspective, this stamp is a great rarity. Its condition adds another dimension of rarity.
