Cat No: 73 var.

image 1863, 2¢ black, major double transfer—the "Atherton shift" (Scott 73 var.), an attractive example with a grid cancel that leaves the re-entry clearly visible in the upper left corner; small surface scrape at top and reperfed at left, where there was originally a natural straight edge (the double transfer having occurred in position 81R), otherwise Fine, Ex-Drews.
Scott $10,000.
Estimate $5,000 - 7,500

The Atherton shift was so-named by Stanley Ashbrook, who first saw an example in the collection of J. P. Atherton. About this striking variety, Ashbrook wrote about the stamp, "Here we have one of the most remarkable double transfers on U. S. stamps that I have ever seen. I have for years classed the One Cent 1851, Type II, 89R2, as the No. 1 among remarkable examples of this variety and in my opinion this 2c Black Jack could well rank as No. 2. Perhaps some would even rank it equal to the 1c".
