Sale Number 1199, Lot Number 1017, 1c 1851-56 Issue (Scott 5-9)1c Blue, Ty. Ic (6b), 1c Blue, Ty. Ic (6b)1c Blue, Ty. Ic (6b). Position 89R4, E Relief, ample to clear margins fully showing the key design characteristics at bottom, deep rich Plate 4 color, neat strike of circular datestamp cancel

VERY FINE. A FRESH AND CHOICE USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1851 ONE-CENT TYPE Ic. A RARE STAMP IN THIS CONDITION.

This variety is often confused for Scott 6, Type Ia (F Relief), which is complete at bottom. However, this sub-type has the ball and plume at lower right slightly less complete (E Relief). Type Ic stamps from positions other than the bottom row have been widely appreciated by specialists for decades, but they were only added to the Scott Catalogue in 1993. This stamp is far scarcer than its Scott value suggests, especially in sound condition.

With 2019 P.F. certificate

VERY FINE. AN EXTREMELY RARE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1851 ONE-CENT TYPE TYPE Ic FROM THE BOTTOM ROW OF PLATE 4. THIS IS THE FIRST UNUSED EXAMPLE OF THIS TYPE CONTAINED IN POWER SEARCH SINCE OUR 1981 RARITIES SALE. ONLY TWO POSITIONS IN THE BOTTOM ROW FURNISHED THE MORE DISTINCT EXAMPLES OF TYPE Ic.

Positions 91R and 96R on Plate 4 come from the bottom row and have the full plume at bottom left and partly complete plume at right (a sub-type of Type Ia). These two are the most desirable examples of Type Ic. Other Type Ic positions on the plate are less distinct.

A Power Search review found only two others in unused condition offered in our Rarities sales and auctions since 1994, including one with top sheet margin and one with large part original gum offered in our 1981 Rarities sale.

Sale Number 1024, Lot Number 20, 1c 1851-56 Issue (Scott 5-9)1c Blue, Ty. Ic (6b), 1c Blue, Ty. Ic (6b)1c Blue, Ty. Ic (6b). Position 89R4, E Relief, huge and balanced margins all around, deep rich Plate 4 color and proof-like impression which shows every nuance of the design, neat strike of circular datestamp cancel

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. WITHOUT QUESTION THIS IS ONE OF THE FINEST EXAMPLES OF THE RARE 1851 ONE-CENT TYPE Ic IN EXISTENCE. THIS STAMP HAS EVERY QUALITY ONE COULD ASK FOR -- LARGE BALANCED MARGINS, BRIGHT PAPER, RICH COLOR AND A PERFECTLY-STRUCK CANCEL WHICH LEAVES THE DESIGN CHARACTERISTICS CLEARLY VISIBLE. A TRUE RARITY.

This variety is often confused for Scott 6, Type Ia, which is complete at bottom. However, this sub-type has the ball and plume at lower right slightly less complete. This variety has been widely recognized by experts for decades, but was only added to Scott Catalogue in 1993.

This stamp is far scarcer than its Scott Catalogue value would suggest, especially with four margins in sound condition. Power Search failed to find its equal. In fact, we have offered only seven unduplicated examples since 1997, two of which are on cover and one of which is in a pair with another type. It is likely that the paucity of copies trading hands has resulted in the Scott Catalogue value not being properly updated.

Ex Kharasch and Chapin. Illustrated in Volume I of Ashbrook's 1c book on p. 243. Illustrated in Brookman on p. 118. With 1971 and 2003 P.F. and 2009 P.S.E. certificates (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $11,000.00). This is the highest grade awarded to date and the only example to achieve this grade.
