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

Plate Four - Bottom Row

USED EXAMPLE OF THE IMPERFORATE 1851 ONE1c Blue, Ty. Ia (6). Position 99R4, huge margins all around, deep rich Plate 4 shade and proof-like impression, barely cancelled by a very light strike of circular datestamp

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THE IMPERFORATE 1851 ONE-CENT TYPE Ia. A BEAUTIFUL STAMP IN EVERY RESPECT -- IT HAS BRIGHT PAPER, DEEP RICH COLOR, A PROOF-LIKE IMPRESSION AND A LIGHT CANCELLATION WHICH ALLOWS THE TYPE CHARACTERISTICS TO BE CLEARLY SEEN.

Stamps printed from Plate 4 were issued in April, May and briefly in June 1857 before perforations were introduced. The relatively small number of imperforate Plate 4 stamps issued during this period explains the rarity and desirability of any of the imperforate stamp types produced from this plate (Ia, Ic, II, III and IIIa). The extremely rare Type Ia, showing the full design at bottom, was furnished only by 18 of the 200 subjects on Plate 4 (the remaining two bottom-row positions were sub-type Ic).

Ex Neinken. The 1925 Kelleher sale of the Dr. Carroll Chase collection featured a Type Ia described as "black town canc. is so light that stamp appears unused" (lot 368), which seems to describe this stamp, but since there were no photographs in the sale catalogue, we cannot be sure if this the ex-Chase stamp.

FINE-VERY FINE. AN EXCEEDINGLY RARE STRIP OF THREE OF THE IMPERFORATE 1851 ONE-CENT TYPE Ia, THE LARGEST-SIZE MULTIPLE OF THIS TYPE THAT EXISTS.

The extremely rare Type Ia, showing the full design at bottom, was furnished only by 18 of the 200 subjects on Plate 4 (the remaining two bottom-row positions were sub-type Ic). One unused combination block is recorded, in which the lower pair is Type 1a. Frank S. Levi Jr. recorded seven used strips of three of the imperforate Type Ia (see Bakers' U.S. Classics, p. 188). Four pairs are also recorded.

Jun. 20" circular datestamp on brownish cover to Woodville Depot Va., few toned spots and slight edgewear, missing part of top flap

AN EXTREMELY FINE GEM EXAMPLE OF THE IMPERFORATE 1851 ONE-CENT TYPE Ia USED WITH VERY FINE EXAMPLES OF TYPES III AND IIIa FROM THE SAME SHEET. A FANTASTIC COVER BEARING THREE DIFFERENT TYPES OF THE 1851 ONE-CENT IMPERFORATE FROM PLATE 4.

This cover bears three singles from Plate 4, but from different areas of the plate. One could speculate that they were cut apart for use on circulars, then used together to make up the 3c letter rate. The Type Ia on this cover is a phenomenal stamp and would be worth our estimate off cover.
