Positions 63/73/83L3, vertical strip of three, unused (no gum), large to huge margins showing parts of adjoining stamps at right, clear at bottom, deep rich Plate 3 color, top stamp tiny toned spot (utterly inconsequential), center stamp light horizontal crease

VERY FINE-EXTREMELY FINE APPEARANCE. AN EXTREMELY RARE UNUSED MULTIPLE OF THE 1851 ONE-CENT TYPE II FROM PLATE 3.

According to Ashbrook and Neinken, Plate 3 is believed to have been made in March or April 1856, possibly to replace the defective Plate 2 and/or to meet the increased demand for stamps concurrent with the April 1855 change in postal regulations requiring prepayment of postage. For an unknown reason--possibly a severe defect that arose in the plate--very few stamps were printed from the new Plate 3 before it was retired. All positions on Plate 3 are Type II and were entered from the same T-A-B Relief roller used for Plates 1 and 2. Plate 3 stamps bear a close resemblance to those from Plate 2. Surviving Plate 3 examples are rare, and unused examples or multiples of any kind are exceedingly rare.

Ex Vogel. With 2011 P.F. certificate. Unpriced in Scott as a pair or strip

Positions 2-3L4, horizontal pair, unused (no gum), both stamps have a significant break in the bottom outer line, which meets the definition of Type IIIa, large margins all around, rich color, small tear at bottom right corner, otherwise Extremely Fine, an attractive and very rare unused multiple from the top row of Plate 4 showing the complete design at top and the breaks in bottom lines, ex Wagshal, with 1980 and 2010 P.F. certificates, the latter states that the stamps are Types II-IIIa (7-8A), but we feel both qualify as Type IIIa, the Scott footnote somewhat illogically states “Regardless of the strength or weakness of the design at bottom, all stamps originating from the top row of Plate 4 are classified as Type II”, Scott Retail as original-gum singles
