Sale Number 1231, Lot Number 12, 1851-56 Issue (Scott 5-17)1c Blue, Ty. II (7), 1c Blue, Ty. II (7)1c Blue, Ty. II (7). Position 10R2 from the upper right corner of Plate 2, huge balanced margins all around including a sizable portion of the corner sheet margins and parts of adjoining stamps to the left and below, cancelled by light face-free strike of "Paid" in small grid in circle -- not the usual Boston cancel, but with space between bars and circle -- wonderful bright shade and proof-like impression

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS EXTRAORDINARY STAMP HAS ACHIEVED THE EXALTED GRADE OF GEM 100 FROM P.S.E. AND RANKS AMONG THE MOST BEAUTIFUL ONE-CENT 1851 ISSUE STAMPS WE HAVE EVER ENCOUNTERED.

There are several Gem 100 or Gem 100 Jumbo Scott 7s that have been harvested from strips, sacrificing the adjoining stamps to create the desired margins. What makes this stamp so remarkable is that it comes from Position 10R2, the corner of the plate, and it was not "created" from a strip. The top and right margins are from the corner of the sheet, where there are no adjoining stamps. It shows small parts of the adjoining positions, 9R at left and 20R below. For many collectors, the appearance of this stamp, with its huge balanced "white" margins, face-free cancel and brilliant color, will be more aesthetically pleasing than the appearance of the 100 Jumbo stamps with surrounding positions on all sides.

Ex "European Connoisseur". With 2015 P.S.E. certificate (Gem 100; SMQ $3,500.00). The P.S.E. Population Reports lists three Gem 100J and four other Gem 100 used stamps for Scott 7.

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A STUNNING USED JUMBO EXAMPLE OF THE IMPERFORATE 1851 ONE-CENT TYPE II. ESPECIALLY DESIRABLE FROM THE SCARCER PLATE 3.

With 2011 P.S.E. certificate (Superb 98 Jumbo; SMQ $3,000.00). SMQ does not differentiate Scott No. 7s between the more common Plates 1E and 2 and the scarcer Plates 3 and 4. Scott prices Plate 3 No. 7 at 2.5-times the value for Plates 1E and 2. This is the highest graded example and the only Superb 98 Jumbo we have ever offered from Plate 3.
