Sale Number 1235, Lot Number 1006, 1851-56 Issue (Scott 6-17)1c Blue, Ty. la (6), 1c Blue, Ty. la (6)1c Blue, Ty. la (6). Position 99L4, spectacular large to huge margins including significant portion of Position 100L at right and trace of Position 89L at top, deep rich color, light circular datestamp cancel

EXTREMELY FINE. A SPECTACULAR EXAMPLE OF THE IMPERFORATE 1851 ONE-CENT TYPE Ia WITH A LIGHT CANCEL AND MARGINS THAT ALLOW THE FULL TYPE CHARACTERISITICS TO BE SEEN.

Stamps printed from Plate 4 were issued in April, May and briefly in June 1857 before perforations were introduced. The relatively small number of imperforate Plate 4 stamps issued during this period explains the rarity and desirability of any of the imperforate stamp types produced from this plate (Ia, Ic, II, III and IIIa). The extremely rare Type Ia, showing the full design at bottom, was furnished only by 18 of the 200 subjects on Plate 4 (the remaining two bottom-row positions were sub-type Ic).

Ex Stephen Brown and Kirke. With 2010 P.F. and 2008 P.S.E. certificates (XF 90 Jumbo; SMQ $30,000.00). Since 2008 the P.S.E. has changed its standards for Jumbo, so we expect this to be recertified as XF 90 and is offered as such (SMQ $24,000.00) -- P.S.E. Population Report for 90 is 6 plus 2 90J (including this stamp) and 6 higher, all used (highest grade for unused is 85)

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS IS EASILY ONE OF THE FINEST USED EXAMPLES OF THE IMPERFORATE 1851 ONE-CENT TYPE Ia. A BEAUTIFUL STAMP IN EVERY RESPECT, GRADED SUPERB 98 BY P.S.E. -- ONE OF ONLY TWO AT THIS GRADE -- WHICH IS THE HIGHEST AWARDED.

Stamps printed from Plate 4 were issued in April, May and briefly in June 1857 before perforations were introduced. The relatively small number of imperforate Plate 4 stamps issued during this period explains the rarity and desirability of any of the imperforate stamp types produced from this plate (Ia, Ic, II, III and IIIa). The extremely rare Type Ia, showing the full design at bottom, was furnished only by 18 of the 200 subjects on Plate 4 (the remaining two bottom-row positions were sub-type Ic).

Ex Neinken and Wagshal. The 1925 Kelleher sale of the Dr. Carroll Chase collection featured a Type Ia described as "black town canc. is so light that stamp appears unused" (lot 368), which seems to describe this stamp, but since there were no photographs in the sale catalogue, we cannot be sure if this the ex-Chase stamp.

With 2010 P.S.E. certificate (Superb 98; SMQ $96,000.00). This is one of only two Scott 6 stamps at this lofty grade, with none higher. Below these two there are four graded 95. The highest grade for an unused example is 85.

HISTORY AND COMMENTARY

The 1¢ Type Ia Comes Only from Bottom of Plate 4

The 1¢ 1851 stamp, with a bust of Franklin based on Caffieri's sculpture, was one of the workhorses of postage stamps issued during the decade it was current. To print enough 1¢ stamps to meet demand, twelve steel plates were made--one was never used (Plate 6), and the first plate was reworked to add life to it (thus, the Early and Late states).

The 1¢ Franklin stamps printed from Plate 4 were issued in April, May and briefly in June 1857, shortly before perforations were introduced into the stamp production process.

Two 1¢ types listed as major Scott Catalogue numbers were produced exclusively from Plate 4--Type Ia (6 or 19) and Type Ic (6b or 19b). Type Ia shows the complete ornamentation at bottom, including the plumes at bottom left and right. That makes it instantly recognizable among imperforate 1¢ 1851 stamps (Type Ic is nearly complete).

Plate 4 stamps were issued both imperforate and perforated, but the relatively smaller production of imperforate stamps explains the great rarity of imperforate versions of Types Ia and Ic from Plate 4. Type Ia stamps were furnished by only 18 of the 200 positions on Plate 4 (the remaining two bottom-row positions are sub-type Ic). Therefore, statistically, Type Ia positions represent 9% of all Plate 4 production, either imperforate or perforated, and only 1.8% of all imperforate stamp production from all plates.

Frank S. Levi, Jr., recorded seven used strips of three of the imperforate 1¢ in which all stamps are Type Ia (see Bakers' U.S. Classics, page 188). There is no larger multiple of Type Ia positions.
