Sale Number 1217, Lot Number 515, 3c 1851-57 Issues - Imprint Positions3c 1851 Issue, Complete Plate Numbers 1 through 8 (11, 11A), 3c 1851 Issue, Complete Plate Numbers 1 through 8 (11, 11A)3c 1851 Issue, Complete Plate Numbers 1 through 8 (11, 11A). Eight singles, from Plates 1 Late, 2 Late, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8, each with sheet margin showing the complete plate number and part imprint, all are right margin examples except for Plate No. 7, all with full to gigantic margins except No. 7 which is cutting in at bottom right (but still the finest of the few known), most in choice Brownish Carmine or Rose Red shades, Plate No. 5 with tiny scissors-cut, Plate No. 7 with corner margin crease and No. 8 with trivial toning on back only

A SPECTACULAR COMPLETE SET OF 3-CENT 1851 ISSUE PLATE NUMBERS. HIGHLY EXHIBITABLE AND EXCEEDINGLY RARE.

This set was built by Dr. Wilbur F. Amonette and we believe it to be the finest showing of plate number copies ever assembled, with all the numerals complete. Since the plate number portion of the imprint -- "No. X" -- straddled two stamps, some singles show plate numbers that are only partially complete. This set shows complete numbers and two stamps with complete "No." as well (Plates 1 and 7). Plate 7 is very rare by itself, with only a few known, so any attempt to duplicate or improve upon this set would be extremely difficult, if not futile.

Ex Dr. Amonette and accompanied by a letter from him about the set
