Jun. 30" circular datestamps on blue 1850 part-printed notice to Hartford Conn., small scissors-cut between right stamps

VERY FINE-EXTREMELY FINE. A STUNNING STRIP OF THREE OF THE IMPERFORATE 1851 ONE-CENT TYPE II FROM THE TOP ROW OF PLATE 4.

Imperforate 1c 1851 multiples from the top row of Plate 4 are extremely rare -- probably just as rare as the bottom-row multiples (Type Ia, Scott 6). This strip not only contains three of the desirable Type II "complete design" positions, it also has one of the "break in bottom line" positions (3L4) which some specialists consider to be Type IIIa.

surrounded by <1c Blue, Ty. III (8),> Position1c Blue, Ty. II (7). Position 2L4 with clear break in outer line at bottom, which meets the definition of Type IIIa, huge margins including part of sheet margin at top and adjoining stamp at bottom, surrounded by 1c Blue, Ty. III (8), Position 61L4, to the right and 1c Blue, Ty. IIIa (8A), Position 77L4, to the left, both have large margins to just touched, the Type III Position 61L4 is a left imprint position (center stamp overlaps sheet margin where imprint should appear), all stamps tied together by two perfect strikes of red Flag and Flagpole in circle fancy cancel (struck upside down), matching "Newark Valley N.Y. Aug. 20" circular datestamp on buff cover to Waverly N.Y., barely reduced at left and with small opening nick at lower left corner

VERY FINE. A NOTEWORTHY AND UNIQUE COVER FROM VARIOUS PERSPECTIVES. IT BEARS THREE DIFFERENT TYPES OF IMPERFORATE ONE-CENT 1851 STAMPS FROM FLATE 4 -- A TYPE II STAMP FROM THE TOP ROW OF PLATE 4 WITH A TYPE IIIa QUALIFYING BREAK IN THE BOTTOM LINE, A TYPE III STAMP FROM AN IMPRINT POSITION, AND TYPE IIIa. ITS PHILATELIC SIGNIFICANCE IS FURTHER ENHANCED BY ONE OF THE FEW PICTORIAL FANCY CANCELLATIONS USED DURING THE 1851 ISSUE ERA -- THE PATRIOTIC RED FLAG IN CIRCLE OF NEWARK VALLEY, NEW YORK.

The stamps on this cover include two interesting Plate 4 positions. Position 2L4 (at center) is a top row Type II with the complete design at top, but the break in the bottom outer line also qualifies it as a Type IIIa. Position 61L4 is a Type III position with the lower portion of the imprint in the upper left sheet margin (overlapped by Type II stamp). Either stamp on cover would be a very desirable rarity, but the combination and additional Type IIIa stamp form what is undoubtedly a unique franking.

Newark Valley is partway between Binghamton and Ithaca N.Y. During the stampless period, Newark Valley used the pictorial "Kissing Doves" handstamp, and later (circa 1857) the postmaster used this patriotic fancy cancellation.

EXTREMELY FINE. A GORGEOUS USED PAIR OF THE 1851 IMPERFORATE ONE-CENT TYPE II FROM THE TOP ROW OF PLATE 4, WHICH SHOWS THE DESIGN COMPLETE AT TOP, INCLUDING POSITION 10R4, THE ONLY DOUBLE TRANSFER ON THIS PLATE.

The only double transfer on Plate 4 is Position 10R4, the righthand stamp in this pair. The Neinken book (p. 270) states, "The lone double transfer, 10R4, is a very rare stamp, in fact, it ranks among the rarest of the double transfers of the one-cent 1851-1857. I have seen very few copies, and only one pair, containing 10R4" (Ashbrook). The footnote by Neinken adds "With the exception of the pair 9-10R4, this author has never seen any other example of 10R4, but has seen at least six perforated examples." A Power Search review of our database produced only one other example of 10R4, a single with slight toning from Sale 765 (lot 139) held 15 years ago. (Image)

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS IS UNDOUBTEDLY THE FINEST EXAMPLE EXTANT OF THE IMPERFORATE ONE-CENT TYPE II FROM THE TOP ROW OF PLATE 4. A PHENOMENAL STAMP IN EVERY RESPECT -- THE MARGINS ARE HUGE ALL AROUND, THE COLOR AND IMPRESSION ARE INTENSE, THE CANCELATION IS CLEAR AND THE PAPER IS FRESH.

Acquired by Jerry Wagshal from a Christie's sale in the mid-1980's and offered to the market for the first time in almost 25 years. As an amusing anecdote, this single was cut from a strip on cover before it was offered in the Christie's sale as a single. After buying the stamp for a record price of nearly $3,000, Jerry Wagshal asked if he could have the cover. It was given to him with a note expressing hope that the price he paid was not indicative of the cover's corner card -- Lunatic Asylum of Dayton (Image)

EXTREMELY FINE. A STUNNING USED EXAMPLE OF THE IMPERFORATE ONE-CENT TYPE II FROM THE TOP ROW OF PLATE 4.

This position has a very small break in the bottom outer line, between the "E" and "C" of "Cent". Some specialists argue that this qualifies it as a Type IIIa. (Image)
