123 ng Image3c Rose, Vertical Pair, Imperforate Horizontally (65d). Top sheet margin vertical pair, unused (no gum), large margin at bottom, choice centering, rich color

EXTREMELY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL PAIR OF THE 3-CENT 1861 ISSUE IMPERFORATE HORIZONTALLY. ESPECIALLY DESIRABLE WITH SUCH A WIDE TOP SHEET MARGIN.

We have been able to assemble most of the top row of the Imperforate Horizontally sheet from examples in our records. It appears likely that these were first separated along the perforations into vertical strips and then were then cut apart along the imperforate side. The number of 3c Imperforate Horizontally originally found is not known, but they are very rare in any form. Most examples we have seen are without gum. The last example we offered was in 2014, and prior to that one has to go back to our 2009 Whitman sale to find another.

Scott Retail as no gum pair is based on our 2014 auction realization (Image)

124   Image3c Rose, Imperforate Horizontally (65d var). Single, radiant color, huge margins including parts of adjoining stamps at top and bottom, roughly separated due to the lack of perforations, neat grid cancel

VERY FINE. THIS IS THE ONLY RECORDED USED EXAMPLE OF THE 3-CENT ROSE IMPERFORATE HORIZONTALLY.

The size of the margins and the method of separation, with parts of the adjoining stamps at top and bottom, are conclusive evidence that this stamp never had horizontal perforations.

Ex Herzog. With 2018 P.F. certificate. Unlisted in Scott as used (Image)

SOLD for $3,000.00

125   Image3c Rose, Printed on Both Sides (65e). Back printed inverted in relation to the front, showing bottom portion of the design on back clearly printed, neat target cancel, small thin spot at top right not mentioned on accompanying certificate

FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE EXAMPLE OF THE 3-CENT 1861 ISSUE PRINTED ON BOTH SIDES. OUR CENSUS CONTAINS ONLY TWELVE USED AND THREE UNUSED COPIES. ONE OF THE GREAT RARITIES OF THE 1861 ISSUE.

Engraved stamps printed on both sides usually have a poor impression on one side and a second, complete impression on the other. They probably occurred when a sheet was printed without proper moistening, which prevented the paper from picking up the ink in the recessed lines of the engraved plate.

The 3c 1861 printed-on-both-sides stamps are known with the orientation of the back impression the same or inverted in relation to the design on the front, which indicates that more than one sheet was printed. The inverted impression on back is a result of the sheet being turned 180 degrees before it was put on the press the second time. The three unused and four of the used are known with the back printed inverted in relation to the front (one is in the Benjamin K. Miller Collection at the New York Public Library).

Our census of Scott 65 printed on both sides, available at our website at https://siegelauctions.com/census/us/scott/65e , contains three unused and twelve used examples (including one in the Miller Collection). As the census indicates, most of these are in poor condition. Short perfs and rounded corners are the most obvious flaws. One is reperfed. The example offered here is in far better condition than most.

Census No. 65e-CAN-07. With 1966 P.F. certificate (Image)
