Sale Number 1199, Lot Number 1025, 1c 1851-56 Issue (Scott 5-9)1c Blue, Ty. IIIa (8A), 1c Blue, Ty. IIIa (8A)1c Blue, Ty. IIIa (8A). Plate 4, original gum, large margins all around, beautiful dark Plate 4 color, wide break in top outer line, fresh

EXTREMELY FINE. THIS SUPERB STAMP IS THE FIRST ORIGINAL-GUM, PREVIOUSLY-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE RARE 1851 ONE-CENT TYPE IIIa TO BE GRADED EXTREMELY FINE 90 BY P.S.E., AND IT IS VERY LIKELY TO REMAIN AT THE TOP OF THE P.S.E. POPULATION REPORT FOR A LONG TIME.

Type IIIa is defined as having a break in the outer line at either top or bottom. The stamp offered here, with huge margins, is an outstanding example of the type, as it clearly shows the bottom line complete and the top line with a wide break. The P.S.E. Population Report shows nothing in OG condition above 50, except for this stamp at XF 90. In the NG/RG/D-POG category there are stamps graded 85 and 95, but we have no idea what the gum condition is for those stamps. Therefore, after years of grading, this OGph XF 90 stamp lands at the top of the Population Report, and we cannot imagine any stamp displacing it, or even matching it, unless something unexpected turns up.

With 2015 P.S.E. certificate (OGph XF 90; SMQ $16,000.00).

Plate 4, original gum, lightly hinged, huge even margins all around with wide break at top and showing part of adjoining stamp at top, deep rich Plate 4 color and proof-like impression

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A MAGNIFICENT ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1851 IMPERFORATE ONE-CENT TYPE IIIA. SUPERB IN EVERY RESPECT.

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.

The Type IIIa from Plate 4 with original gum is extremely rare. We have offered only a handful in similar condition over the past 15 years. A look at the P.S.E. Population Report also gives an indication of its rarity in better condition -- only one has graded higher than 50 (graded 90 and offered in our 2015 European Connoisseur's Collection, realized $17,500 hammer)
