Positions 84/94L3, vertical pair from the 9th and 10th rows, original gum, large even margins, marvelous intense Prussian Blue shade, early impression showing numerous fine cracks and other plate marks for these two positions, bright and fresh paper

EXTREMELY FINE GEM PAIR. THIS MAGNIFICENT PAIR IS ONE OF THE FINEST PIECES EXTANT FROM THE SHORT-LIVED 1851 ONE-CENT PLATE 3. HOWEVER, FOR MANY YEARS THIS PAIR WAS MISATTRIBUTED TO PLATE 2. IN 1998 JERRY WAGSHAL CORRECTLY IDENTIFIED THE PLATE POSITIONS AS 84L AND 94L ON PLATE 3.

This superb pair was described as a Plate 2 impression in auctions of the collections formed by Caspary, Hetherington and Klein, and it was certified as a Plate 2 pair by The Philatelic Foundation in 1957. It was offered in a 1998 Shreve sale, described again as a Plate 2 printing, and was acquired by Mr. Wagshal, who successfully plated the pair to Positions 84/94L3. Thus, after four decades of misidentification, the true identity of this pair was revealed.

Ex Caspary, Hetherington and Klein. With 1957 and 1988 P.F. certificates (as Plate 2). (Image)
