RARE AND DESIRABLE PAIR OF THE 18511c Blue, Ty. IV, Printed "PAID" Precancel (9 var). Horizontal pair, left stamp in all capital letters, right stamp all lower case, large margins to just in including trace of adjoining stamp at left

FINE. A RARE AND DESIRABLE PAIR OF THE 1851 ONE-CENT TYPE IV, COMBINING TWO DIFFERENT STYLES OF THE "PAID" PRECANCEL. PERHAPS THREE OR FOUR SUCH PAIRS EXIST.

Little is known about the "Paid" precancels on the 1c 1851 Issue. The Ashbrook book illustrates several varieties of actual and supposed precancels. Ashbrook surmises that "the markings... were printed from newspaper type. In all probability the overprinting was done in a newspaper printing plant, and the stamps were used on wrappers enclosing newspapers or more than probable, on the newspapers themselves." Ashbrook's theory was borne out by the discovery of a newspaper wrapper, which was sold in our 2004 Rarities sale.
