ONE OF THE FEW EXAMPLES KNOWN OF A ONE-C1c Blue, Ty. IIIa (8A). Position 60R4, unused (no gum), large margins all around including significant part of imprint in right sheet margin, few tiny scuffs affect portrait

EXTREMELY FINE APPEARANCE. ONE OF THE FEW EXAMPLES KNOWN OF A ONE-CENT 1851 IMPERFORATE STAMP FROM PLATE 4 SHOWING ANY PART OF THE IMPRINT.

The Neinken book states, "Stamps from Plate 4 showing part of the imprint are very rare." This outstanding example was featured (and described as unused) in the Emerson collection.

Position 70R4 with wide sheet margin with lower part of imprint at right, unused (traces of original gum), huge margins at left and bottom, mostly ample to barely in along top ornaments, deep rich color, a strong Type III position with wide break at bottom and substantial break in outer line at top, sheet margin with thin well to right of imprint, stamp with vertical crease

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE UNUSED IMPERFORATE ONE-CENT 1851 TYPE III FROM PLATE 4 WITH PART OF THE IMPRINT AT RIGHT.

The Neinken book states, "Stamps from Plate 4 showing part of the imprint are very rare." Looking at the layout of Plate 4 (Neinken book, page 263), the imprint position types are as follows: left pane 31/41L Type IIIa, 51L Type IIIa-III, 61L Type III, right pane 40R Type III, 50/60R Type IIIa, 70R Type III. Therefore, only Positions 61L, 40R and 70R4 are Type III imprint positions (51L is a "swing" position with a smaller break).

With A.P.S. certificate. Scott Retail as original gum $25,000.00 and $9,500.00 as no gum for a basic stamp without premium for imprint (Image)

Positions 41-42/51-52R4, block of four, unused (no gum), with left straddle-pane margin, the upper left stamp is Position 41R4, one of the E Relief positions that can be classified as Type Ic -- this is an early impression that shows many distinctive plate marks on 41R4 and, therefore, might have enough of the lower left plume to qualify as Type Ic -- large to ample margins on other sides, rich Plate 4 color, scissors-cut at right between stamps, small tear affects bottom right stamp

EXTREMELY FINE. AN EXCEEDINGLY RARE UNUSED BLOCK OF THE ONE-CENT 1851 IMPERFORATE FROM PLATE 4, CONTAINING ONE OF THE TYPE Ic-IIIa "SWING" POSITIONS.

The E Relief on the transfer roll was a true Type Ic design, with the bottom left plume complete and the bottom right nearly so. Most of the E Relief transfers were shortened at bottom or burnished during the platemaking process, thus eliminating the Type Ic features, but a few have enough of the original detail to qualify them as Type Ic. In the case of Position 41L4, early impressions show a nearly complete bottom left plume, as well as other plating marks that vanished as the plate wore. This block appears to be an early impression, showing all of the scratches and burrs on 41L4 that do not appear as clearly on later impressions. The Scott premium for No. 6b (E Relief Type Ic) versus No. 8A (Type IIIa) is only 10%, but for the specialist, this block is far more desirable and rare.

Ex Neinken. Unpriced in Scott as a block, but a pair of No. 8A is valued at $13,500.00 (Image)
