Jan. 30, 1858” circular datestamp on cover to Baton Rouge La., right stamp small scuff in margin at upper right outside the design is utterly inconsquential, but mentioned on accompanying certificate

FINE-VERY FINE TYPE III STRIP OF THREE ON COVER. THIS IS REPORTED TO BE THE ONLY KNOWN STRIP OF THREE OF THE IMPERFORATE 1851 ONE-CENT TYPE III ON COVER. A GREAT RARITY.

Multiples of the 1c 1851 Type III Imperforate on cover were the subject of an article by Calvet M. Hahn in the Chronicle (November 1982). Hahn’s article correctly notes that Type III multiples can only occur in a few places on Plate 4 where two or more contiguous Type III positions were present (in this case, three C Reliefs, Positions 64-66R4). Hahn’s article attempts to document the known examples of Type III multiples, but he was apparently unaware of this cover bearing a strip of three from Positions 64-66R4.

Ex Vogel. With 2011 P.F. certificate. Signed and plated by Ashbrook. Scott value for off-cover strip of three is $8,500.00 (Image)

81   Image1c Blue, Ty. IIIa (8A). Position 88L4, E Relief, large even margins all around, deep shade and proof-like impression, neat strike of circular datestamp

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THE IMPERFORATE 1851 ONE-CENT TYPE IIIa. A DIFFICULT STAMP TO FIND IN SOUND CONDITION WITH SUCH LARGE MARGINS.

This 9th row position is listed in Neinken as a Type IIIa, and it does have the required break in the top outer line, but the line is much more complete than usually seen on Plate 4 positions other than the Type II’s in the top row.

Ex Neinken and Wagshal. With 2010 P.F. certificate (Image)
