The Wagshal Collection, Part 2: One-Cent 1851-56 Imperforate continued...

Top Row of Plate One Early
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
608   1c Blue, Ty. II-II-Ib (7-7-5A).> Positions 1-3R1E, horizontal strip of three from the top left corner of Plate 1 Early, comprising a pair of Type II at left and Type Ib at right, <sheet margin at top>, other
margins ample to touched or just barely in1c Blue, Ty. II-II-Ib (7-7-5A). Positions 1-3R1E, horizontal strip of three from the top left corner of Plate 1 Early, comprising a pair of Type II at left and Type Ib at right, sheet margin at top, other margins ample to touched or just barely in at left and bottom, deep Plate 1 Early shade, grid cancels, small scuffs in top margin at left, vertical crease in center stamp, the Type Ib at right is sound

VERY FINE EXAMPLE OF THE RARE 1851 ONE-CENT TYPE Ib CONTAINED IN AN ATTRACTIVE SHEET-MARGIN STRIP FROM PLATE ONE EARLY.

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 of 3-6R and 8-9R were ironed out when the entries were made below them. Positions 6R and 8R had less of the bottom ironed out than the other Type Ib positions, and for this reason they are more desirable examples of the type. Positions 1R and 2R (the two left stamps in this strip) were entered from Relief T on the trimmed-relief transfer roll.

Ex Ashbrook (removed from the Plate 1E Right Pane reconstruction offered in lot 607) and Neinken. Scott Retail as a Type Ib-II pair is $14,000.00 (the sound Position 3R1E in this strip has an individual Scott value of $10,000.00) (Image)

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.

EXTREMELY FINE APPEARANCE. A STRIKING EXAMPLE OF THE RARE 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. 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.

All Type Ib stamps are very scarce, and the two best examples (6R and 9R) are rare. These top-row positions usually have an ample top margin, but frequently the margins are close or cutting into the sides or bottom. A Type Ib with full margins all around is a great rarity. This stamp has the added attraction of an unusual early type of fancy cancel. (Image)
