1c 1851-56 Issue (Scott 5-9)
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
5117   1c Blue, Ty. Ib (5A).> Position 6R1E, large margins all around incl. part of adjoining stamp at right, brilliant color on crisp paper, bold strike of square grid cancel<><>^EXTREMELY FINE. A STUNNING USED
EXAMPLE OF THE RARE 1851 ONE-CENT TYPE Ib F1c Blue, Ty. Ib (5A). Position 6R1E, large margins all around incl. part of adjoining stamp at right, brilliant color on crisp paper, bold strike of square grid cancel

EXTREMELY FINE. A STUNNING USED EXAMPLE OF THE RARE 1851 ONE-CENT TYPE Ib FROM PLATE ONE EARLY, FROM ONE OF THE TWO POSITIONS THAT FURNISHED THE BEST TYPE Ib EXAMPLES.

Type Ib was produced only as an imperforate stamp from Plate 1 Early. Six positions on Plate 1E furnished stamps qualifying as Type Ib -- Positions 3-6R and 8-9R -- distinguished by the complete design at top and nearly complete design at bottom. When first entered on the plate, these six positions (as well as 7R1E) had the complete design at top and bottom. However, unlike 7R, small portions of the bottoms were ironed out when the entries were made below them. Positions 6R and 8R had less of the bottom erased than the other Type Ib positions, and for this reason they are more desirable examples of the type.

With 2009 P.S.E. certificate (XF 90, SMQ $30,300.00). For Positions 6R1E and 8R1E (the better positions, which catalogue more than 50% higher than other positions in both Scott and SMQ), none has graded higher. This is the highest grade awarded to this position. (Image)

Margins to slightly in with about one-half of the adjoining stamp at top (shows "id" of precancel), bottom stamp tear at right and light scuff on "half stamp" at top, Fine appearing and rare precancel variety, little is known about the "Paid" precancels on the 1c 1851 Issue, Ashbrook surmised that "the markings... were printed from newspaper type. In all probability the overprinting was done in a newspaper printing plant, and the stamps were used on wrappers enclosing newspapers or more than probable, on the newspapers themselves." -- Ashbrook's theory was borne out by the discovery of a newspaper wrapper, which was sold in our 2004 Rarities sale (Image)
