Sale Number 1106, Lot Number 3038, 1851-56 Issue(1c) Dull Blue, Franklin Carrier (LO1), (1c) Dull Blue, Franklin Carrier (LO1)(1c) Dull Blue, Franklin Carrier (LO1). Original gum, lightly hinged, four large to huge margins including a trace of the frameline of the adjoining stamp at left, rich color, completely free of the flaws that plague the handful of existing unused examples

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A MIRACULOUS CONDITION RARITY WHICH IS BY FAR THE FINEST KNOWN ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1851 FRANKLIN CARRIER STAMP -- GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY THE PHILATELIC FOUNDATION.

Any unused example of this stamp is a rarity, as only a handful exist in any quality. To find one with original gum (we have only offered two in over 15 years) and completely sound is an almost unheard of combination. In our opinion, this remarkable stamp ranks as one of the greatest condition rarities in all of United States philately. We have positioned it with the 1851 Issue to emphasize our long-held opinion that the Franklin and Eagle Carrier stamps belong with the 1851-56 Issues.

With 1991 and 2011 P.F. certificates (the latter graded XF-Superb 95)

Sale Number 947, Lot Number 11, Franklin Carrier Issue(1c) Dull Blue, Franklin Carrier (LO1), (1c) Dull Blue, Franklin Carrier (LO1)(1c) Dull Blue, Franklin Carrier (LO1). Horizontal pair, original gum, margins slightly in to just clear, fine impression, each stamp with slight crease and small thin spot

VERY GOOD-FINE APPEARANCE. THIS IS THE ONLY RECORDED MULTIPLE OF THE 1851 FRANKLIN CARRIER STAMP WITH ORIGINAL GUM.

The rarity of Franklin Carrier unused multiples has been undermined by the plethora of reprint multiples, including the famous and controversial Slater block, which was finally proven to be a reprint. Perry's records contained only two items: this original-gum pair from the Hollowbush collection and a "defective" unused strip of three sold by George B. Sloane to H. R. Harmer. We have been unable to verify the existence of the strip.
