1851-56 Issue (Scott 5-17)
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
12° nh Image1c Blue, Ty. IV (9). Mint N.H., enormous margins all around including parts of all nine surrounding stamps, deep rich color and proof-like impression

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS MAGNIFICENT MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 1851 ONE-CENT TYPE IV HAS BEEN GRADED GEM 100 JUMBO BY P.S.E., WHICH IS THE HIGHEST GRADE ATTAINABLE. THE ESSENCE OF PERFECTION.

Many collectors have a tendency to discount how difficult it is to find imperforate classics in such superb condition. The assumption is that there are multiples which can be split to "make" perfect singles. However, one would have to find a block of nine with no hinging in the surrounding stamps that are included in order to produce the Gem offered here. For all the imperforate issues (Scott 1-17), only four stamps in total have achieved this ultimate grade in Mint N.H. condition -- two of Scott 9 and two of Scott 11.

With 2015 P.S.E. certificate (Gem 100; unpriced in SMQ in Mint N.H. condition). Scott 9 is priced at the grade of 100 in hinged condition, at $13,000.00. This does not take into consideration any multiplier for Mint N.H. condition or for the higher grade. (Image)
