4532 image1841: 1 d. red-brown on blued paper, black plate 11, lettered EC, an unused example with large margins all round, in a bright vibrant shade, fresh and very fine, superb large part og. An exceptional example of this rare stamp which is considerably scarcer in unused condition than the Black Plate 11 Gi AS74 = £ 8'500.rnNote: From the block of 13 unused stamps forwarded by Jas. Campbell to G.H. Backhoffner at the Polytechnic Institution on the 9th February 1841: "Sir, I have much pleasure in transmitting to you herewith, by permission of Colonel Maberly, two sheets of the Penny Labels, one black, the other red - and a third sheet Two. Penny blue, the whole free from the adhesive preparation". The three sheets were sent as Official notice had been taken of the blueing of the paper and it is presumed that the stamps were sent to Mr. Backhoffner to investigate the discolouration. The sheets were unlikely to have been sent without gum as this may have been a cause of the 'discolouration'. See the 'British Philatelist', 1915-16, page 82.rnProvenance: Collection Lt.-Colonel Arthur Bates, Harmers 3-5, London, lot 644. As a block of thirteen DC-DG / EC-EG / FC-FE; Harmers, London, 1 March 1937, lot 97. As a block of thirteen DC-DG / EC-EG / FC-FE; Collection James B. Seymour, RL, London, 11 April 1951, lot 526.

As a single.rnDue to the damage to 'ED', the offered stamp was cut from the multiple. The remaining irregular block of eight was in the Cooley and Buranasombati collections. This was again split, with a pair DC-DD appearing in Grosvenor (16 April 2002, lot 366) and the block of six DE-DG / ED-EG in Bonhams (14 Feb 2002). From the auction descriptions above, 'EC' was always one of the faultless stamps in the original multiple. (Image 1) (Image 2) (Image 3)
