539   Image3c 1851 Issues, Dr. Carroll Chase First Color Study. Small book disassembled and mounted on annotated exhibit pages, containing 85 used stamps with handwritten notes by Dr. Carroll Chase, arranged on seven pages by years 1851-1857, each stamp with Chase's original plating on back and with printed annotations below which are Dr. Wilbur F. Amonette's revised color assignments based on comparisons to Dr. Chase's final color chart (this study is Chase's first color chart), many rare and interesting shades including Dull Experimental Orange Brown, Very Bright Orange Brown, Deep Orange Brown, Yellowish Orange Brown, 1856 Pale Orange Brown, one approaching Plum but identified by Dr. Amonette as Deep Purplish Claret, many others, many four-margined stamps and with attractive cancels, some small faults to be expected

FINE-VERY FINE. A WONDERFUL COLOR STUDY, WHICH WAS REPORTEDLY DR. CARROLL CHASE'S FIRST 3-CENT 1851-57 COLOR CHART -- EACH PAGE ANNOTATED BY DR. WILBUR F. AMONETTE WITH UPDATED COLOR ASSIGNMENTS.

This is a wonderful book which brings together the two most notable past experts with respect to colors of the 3c 1851-57 Issues. Dr. Amonette acquired a few color studies from the material studied and catalogued by Dr. Chase, including this color chart which is reportedly Dr. Chase's first effort, and the final Chase color chart which Dr. Amonette used for many years to assign colors to stamps that were sent to him for expertizing. Not all of Dr. Chase's notes in this chart are correct, and some are modified by Dr. Amonette. There is of course room to debate even Dr. Amonette's assignments in some cases, but overall his interpretations are most often correct (though not returnable if an expert committee disagrees). Overall this is an historic and fascinating book (Image)

542 c Image3c Orange Brown, Ty. II (10A). Position 92L2E, identified by Dr. Amonette as Intense Orange Brown and the knockout color of the stamp certainly justifies this, large margins to clear at top including portion of adjoining stamp at left, cancelled by clear strike of blue "Way 6" in circle on September 1851 docketed folded cover to Lynchburg Va., central file fold, Very Fine, this marking for the 5c collect fee plus 1c way fee was originally applied to stampless covers and was obsolete when struck on stamped covers such as this, it was applied to mail travelling on the James River & Kanawha Canal, its use on this cover with a beautiful Intense Orange Brown 3c stamp is very appealing, accompanied by newspaper cutout advertising the packet line from Richmond to Lynchburg, signed Dr. Amonette (Image)
