1c 1851-56 Issue (Scott 6-9)
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
697   Image1c Blue, Ty. Ic, Ia (6b-6). Positions 91-92R4, horizontal pair, F Relief, left stamp Type Ic, right stamp Type Ia, ample margins to slightly cut in, deep shade and detailed impression, light strike of circular datestamp leaves design clearly visible

FRESH AND FINE. AN EXTREMELY RARE PAIR OF THE ONE-CENT 1851 FROM THE BOTTOM ROW OF PLATE FOUR -- CONTAINING TYPE Ia AND ONE OF ONLY TWO TYPE Ic POSITIONS FOUND IN THE BOTTOM ROW.

The identifying characteristic of Type Ic from the bottom row of Plate 4 is similar to that of Type Ia, Scott 6, which has the design complete at bottom and partly complete at top. The difference between the two types is that the bottom right plume on the Type Ic is incomplete. Neinken classifies it as a sub-type of Scott 6 (or 19), and the Scott Catalogue gives it a separate listing (6b). Neinken notes that only eight or nine positions on Plate 4 yield this type. Of these, only two are found on the bottom row of the plate (Positions 91R4 and 96R4). The other six or seven Type Ic positions were created either by burnishing of the plate or by plate wear. Neinken states that Position 91R4, the position of the left stamp in the pair offered here, yields the best example of the rare Type Ic.

With 1983 P.F. certificate calling the pair Type Ia (Scott 6) (Image)

705 og Image1c Blue, Ty. II, Cracked Plate (7 var). Positions 1-3L2, strip of three with full top left corner sheet margins, clearly showing the outline of the plate, Position 2L2 with huge "lightning bolt" crack along right side of design, original gum, middle stamp with light vertical crease, left stamp with light vertical crease in the margin clear of the ornaments

A SPECTACULAR ORIGINAL-GUM STRIP FROM THE TOP LEFT CORNER OF PLATE 2, SHOWING ONE OF THE "BIG FLAW" PLATE CRACK POSITONS.

Unlike plate cracks resulting from stress fractures during the course of printing, the Plate 2 crack is believed to have been caused by an integral flaw in the steel. As Plate 2 was used, the crack widened and extended downward into the fourth row. Due to the nature of this unusually large crack, Ashbrook preferred to call it the "Plate 2 Flaw."
