2026° ng Image1c Blue, Ty. Ia (19). Position 100R4, part original gum called "small part" on most recent certificate but which covers about half of the back, fine impression and rich color, well-centered, the bottom perfs in but intact due to scissors separation, which nicely shows the nearly complete Type Ia characteristics at bottom

FINE AND RARE UNUSED EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 PERFORATED ONE-CENT TYPE Ia.

Type Ia was produced by only 18 of the 20 bottom-row positions on Plate 4. Although Plate 4 was designed with sufficient space to accommodate perforations, the height of the top row and bottom row positions resulted in the perforations often cutting into the design at either top or bottom. For this reason, stamps from the bottom row of Plate 4 with perforations into the design are still desirable -- especially with intact perfs which show the nearly full plumes.

From our 1995 Rarities sale. With 1984 and 2008 P.F. certificates. Scott Retail without gum (Image)

2028 c Image3c Dull Red, Ty. III (26). L-shaped multiple of five, fresh and bright color, tied by grid cancels, "Old Point Comfort Va. Aug. 10" (1861) circular datestamp on yellow cover with red and blue Waving Flag Patriotic design to Constantine, Algeria, with slogan "If any one attempts to haul down the American Flag, shoot him on the spot", red "New York Paid 12" credit datestamp and red Calais transit datestamp (Aug. 27) also tie stamps, red boxed "P.D." handstamp, Paris and receiving backstamps, carried on the Cunarder Africa from New York on Aug. 14, 1861, arriving Queenstown Aug. 24

VERY FINE. A SPECTACULAR AND RARE USE OF THE 3-CENT 1857 ISSUE ON A PATRIOTIC COVER TO ALGERIA. ONE OF THE MOST OUTSTANDING 3-CENT PATRIOTIC COVERS IN EXISTENCE.

The rates to Algeria were the same as those to France -- at this time the treaty rate was 15c. This cover, used in August 1861 from Old Point Comfort, is a remarkable and unique Civil War era artifact.

Ex Haas, Grunin and Myers. With 2004 P.F. certificate (Image)

2029° og Image5c Red Brown (28). Brownish, slightly disturbed original gum, deep rich color, perfs essentially clear of outer projections on all sides, single short perf at bottom and light diagonal crease at top left

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. THE 1857 5-CENT RED BROWN IS AN EXTREMELY RARE STAMP WITH ORIGINAL GUM.

The perforated 5c Type I stamps in any shade of Red Brown are very rare in unused or original-gum condition. The number of original-gum Scott 28 singles falls somewhere between the numbers for the Brick Red (Scott 27) and the Indian Red (Scott 28A), which catalogue $80,000.00 and $160,000.00, respectively.

2031° og Image5c Indian Red (28A). Large part original gum, beautiful color in the true Indian Red shade, exceptional centering for this difficult issue with perforations completely clear of outer projections of the design on all sides, detailed impression clearly showing the lathework background, small corner crease at bottom right and corner crease at top right

EXTREMELY FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 5-CENT INDIAN RED ISSUE. THIS IS ONE OF THE RAREST ORIGINAL-GUM STAMPS IN UNITED STATES PHILATELY -- ONLY FIVE INDIAN RED STAMPS WITH ANY AMOUNT OF GUM ARE CONTAINED IN OUR RECORDS.

Our search of old auction catalogues and the records of The Philatelic Foundation and P.S.E. yielded only eleven unused examples of Scott 28A including this stamp. Of these, only five have been described as having any gum whatsoever. These are:

1) The stamp offered in the Whitman sale (Sale 968, lot 37), previously in the 1941 C. A. Brown sale by Harmer, Rooke & Co. where described as "full original gum", also ex 1968 Rarities sale and A. T. Seymour Collection (Sale 373, Apr. 23, 1970, lot 35) where described as "large part original gum" and 2005 Rarities sale (lot 102)

2) The "Ambassador" copy (Sale 300, Apr. 27, 1966, lot 45A), described as part original gum, also ex "Argentum" (Sale 807, Feb. 23, 1999, lot 76) where described as "unused (traces of gum)"

3) The Caspary/Lilly copy, described in both catalogues as full original gum and with light horizontal crease, offered in our auction of the Hoffman collection (Sale 956, lot 35)

4) Part original gum, light diagonal crease and two small corner creases, ex Geisler and "Laila" (Sale 972, lot 3039)

5) The example offered here, surfaced in an estate in 2009 (Sale 976, lot 1224).

Census No. 28A-OG-05. With 2009 P.S.E. certificate (POG, Fine 70; unpriced in SMQ with original gum above the grade of 50, SMQ $175,000.00 as 50). The grade of Fine 70 indicates that this should grade 90 for centering, based on the P.S.E.'s prescribed deductions for faults. (Image)
