Plate 4, full margins showing much of the key design characteristics, just touching the plumes at bottom, deep Plate 4 color, circular datestamp cancel, a few minor flaws including small edge thin, tiny tear and corner creases

VERY FINE APPEARING EXAMPLE OF THE 1851 ONE-CENT IMPERFORATE TYPE Ia.

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).

With 2008 P.S.E. certificate

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).

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. A SPECTACULAR EXAMPLE OF THE 1851 ONE-CENT IMPERFORATE TYPE IIIa FROM PLATE 4, GRADED SUPERB 98 JUMBO -- THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED.

Type IIIa is defined as having a break in outer lines at either top or bottom. The example offered here, which shows the bottom line complete and top line with wide break, is a superb example of the type. Stamps printed from Plate 4 were issued in April-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).

With 2021 P.S.E. certificates (Superb 98 Jumbo; SMQ $16,250.00). This is the highest grade awarded and it is shared by only two others

Position 99R4, huge margins all around, deep rich Plate 4 shade and proof-like impression, barely cancelled by a very light strike of circular datestamp, the margins and the cancel combining to beautifully highlight the type characteristics

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.

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A MAGNIFICENT USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1851 ONE-CENT IMPERFORATE TYPE IIIA FROM PLATE 4. AN EXTREMELY DIFFICULT STAMP TO FIND WITH SUCH HUGE MARGINS.

Stamps printed from Plate 4 were issued in April-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.
