1851-56 Issue (Scott 5-17)

Sale No: 1209
Lot No: 1094
Symbol:
Cat No: 5

image 1c Blue, Ty. I (5). Position 7R1E, huge margins to barely touched at bottom, including large sheet margin at top, with significant parts of adjoining stamps at sides (both of which are Type Ib, Scott 5A), very lightly cancelled by North Cumberland Pa. circular datestamp, all of the type characteristics are clearly visible, gorgeous early color and impression

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. AN EXCEEDINGLY RARE SOUND FOUR-MARGIN EXAMPLE OF THE ONE-CENT 1851 TYPE I, POSITION 7R1E, WHICH IS THE ONLY ONE OF THE 1,000 POSITIONS USED TO PRINT IMPERFORATE ONE-CENT STAMPS THAT SHOWS THE COMPLETE DESIGN. THIS IS WITHOUT QUESTION ONE OF THE FINEST IN EXISTENCE, AND IT IS ONE OF TWO GRADED XF 90 JUMBO BY P.S.E. -- THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED.

The published census compiled by Jerome S. Wagshal (available at our website at https://siegelauctions.com/census/us/scott/5 ) contains at least 98 unduplicated records of Scott 5. There are probably no more than ten examples existing outside of the Wagshal census population. Therefore, the 1c 1851 Type I is the rarest of all United States stamps regularly issued prior to the 1868 Grills.

Because of the significance attached to the outer portions of the 1c 1851 design, rare types that have been carefully cut apart, so as not to impinge on any part of the design, are extremely desirable. The narrow spacing between stamps in the sheet and the users' indifference to the outlying ornamentation during separation are factors that contributed to the great rarity of four-margin copies. The example offered here comes from a strip of three, Positions 6-8R1E, that was removed from a cover. Examples of Position 7R1E (Scott 5) with large side and bottom margins, where there was very little space between it and the adjoining stamps, are true rarities. In fact, using the census data, it is clear that this stamp is among the two or three finest sound off-cover examples known. The ex-Newbury strip on cover and the ex-Vogel single on cover are among the finest examples of Position 7R1E on cover.

Wagshal Census No. 5-COV-82. Ex Jacobs, Krug and Dr. Kapiloff as part of a strip on cover. With 2008 P.S.E. certificate (XF 90 Jumbo; SMQ $525,000.00). This is the highest grade awarded and one other shares it (cancelled in red, ex Merlin). Scott Retail is $65,000.00 and the Scott Catalogue notes "Values for No. 5 are for examples with margins touching or cutting slightly into the design, or for examples with four margins and minor faults. Very few examples with the design untouched exist, and these sell for much more than the values shown." (Image)

image 12c Black (17). Horizontal pair, original gum, barest faint trace of hinging (if at all), incredibly huge margins all around including sheet margin at right and significant parts of four adjacent stamps, proof-like impression in a beautiful grayish black shade on bright fresh paper

EXTREMELY FINE GEM PAIR. A SUPERB ORIGINAL-GUM HORIZONTAL PAIR OF THE 12-CENT 1851 ISSUE WITH COLOSSAL MARGINS AND EXTRAORDINARY FRESHNESS.

As this pair amply demonstrates, the spacing between stamps on the plate is very narrow. Most examples (unused and used) have either narrow margins or are cutting into the framelines. This pair, with full original gum and with such large margins, is a remarkable rarity.

2000 P.F. certificate no longer accompanies. With 2012 P.S.E. certificate (OGph, Superb 98 Jumbo; unpriced in SMQ as a pair, SMQ $65,000.00 as a single). Scott Retail for a pair is $17,500.00 (Image)
