Corner and Sheet Margin Examples
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
109°   ImageThe incomparable "Newbury" Position 100R corner-margin used copy of the 5¢ 1847 Issue

5¢ Red Brown (1), Position 100R with enormous bottom right corner sheet margins, 6mm at right and 10.5mm at bottom, large margins other sides, grayish shade and sharp intermediate impression, light strike of red grid cancel, tiny corner crease at far edge of sheet margin at top right is barely evident while drying and inconsequential

Extremely Fine Gem. This is the famed Saul Newbury corner sheet-margin copy of the 5c 1847 Issue. Easily one of the finest corner-margin examples in existence.

110°   ImageThe incomparable "Newbury" Position 91L corner-margin used copy of the 10¢ 1847 Issue

10¢ Black (2), Position 91L with huge bottom left corner sheet margins, approximately 12mm at bottom and 5mm at left, other two margins are also large to huge, sharp proof-like impression, red New York square grid cancel, very faint vertical crease and trivial corner crease at far bottom left of sheet margin, utterly inconsequential

Extremely Fine Gem. This stamp has the largest margins of all known used corner-margin copies of the 10¢ 1847 Issue. A stamp of remarkable beauty.

In Philip T. Wall's census of the 10¢ 1847, which encompasses both the Levi records and decades of searching through auction catalogues, he recorded fourteen used stamps, one unused stamp and one on cover with self-evident corner sheet margins. Another four to six stamps or covers can be added to this count, which became known after Wall completed his census. Other stamps can be plated to the position but do not show significant sheet margins. This example has the widest sheet margins of all.
