Sale Number 908, Lot Number 4518, Carrier Stamps and MarkingsU.S.P.O., Philadelphia Pa., 1c Black (7LB18), U.S.P.O., Philadelphia Pa., 1c Black (7LB18)U.S.P.O., Philadelphia Pa., 1c Black (7LB18). Mostly clear impression struck on corner sheet margin of 1c Blue, Type II (7) from Position 10R2, part of design and plate wash are clearly visible, scissors-cut, uncancelled on piece, small tears at top and bottom (one from scissors)

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. THE ONLY EXAMPLE OF THIS RARE CARRIER STAMP WE HAVE SEEN IMPRESSED ON THE CORNER OF THE SHEET. THE ULTIMATE "CORNER COPY".

The Philadelphia carrier stamps printed on the sheet selvage of imperforate 1c 1851 stamps hold a unique position in United States philately. Elsewhere in the world there are very few instances in which sheet selvage was used to produce adhesive stamps -- the Emory Va. Confederate provisional and early stamps of Zanzibar come to mind as other examples. Two handstamps were used to create the Philadelphia carrier stamps: the Eagle oval (Scott type C31), which produced 7LB16, and the large oval (type C32), from which 7LB18 was made. This is the only example of either type we have seen from a corner sheet-margin position.

Ex Knapp and Hall. With 2001 P.F. certificate.
