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

Plate Four - Type III
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
1112   1c Blue, Ty. III (8).> Position 67R4, C Relief with usual wide break at bottom and small break in top outer line, huge margins all around including part of adjoining stamps at right and bottom, neat strike of
circular datestamp<><>^EXTREMELY FINE.1c Blue, Ty. III (8). Position 67R4, C Relief with usual wide break at bottom and small break in top outer line, huge margins all around including part of adjoining stamps at right and bottom, neat strike of circular datestamp

EXTREMELY FINE. A SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THE IMPERFORATE 1851 ONE-CENT TYPE III.

Although the break in the top outer line of this position is relatively small, it is distinct and was present when the entry was first made. For this reason, it is more desirable than a "swing position" with a break due to wear.

VERY FINE AND CHOICE EXAMPLE OF THE IMPERFORATE 1851 ONE-CENT TYPE III.

Although the break in the top outer line of this position is relatively small, it is distinct and was present when the entry was first made. For this reason, it is more desirable than a "swing position" with a break due to wear. Accompanied by plating diagram showing the long layout line at right which is clearly evident on this stamp.

VERY FINE TYPE III PAIR ON A 2-CENT CIRCULAR RATE COVER. THIS IS REPORTED TO BE THE ONLY RECORDED PAIR OF THE IMPERFORATE 1851 ONE-CENT TYPE III ON COVER. A GREAT RARITY.

This cover was the subject of an article by Calvet M. Hahn in the Chronicle (November 1982). Hahn's article correctly notes that Type III multiples can only occur in a few places on Plate 4 where two contiguous Type III positions were present (in this case, two C Reliefs, Positions 69-70L4). Hahn's article attempts to document the known examples of Type III multiples. He references three off-cover multiples that could potentially contain side-by-side Type III stamps (one of which is offered in this sale as lot 1087). Hahn cites this cover as the only one recorded with a pair. A pair of 1c 1851 stamps was only used for unusual rates: for example, as 2c printed matter rate or drop-letter/carrier rate. Pairs could also be found in strips of three used to pay the domestic rate.
