Sale Number 1212, Lot Number 6, 1851-60 Issues1c Blue, Ty. IV (9), 1c Blue, Ty. IV (9)1c Blue, Ty. IV (9). Plate 1 Late, Mint N.H., recut once at top and bottom, enormous margins all around including parts of all surrounding stamps, deep rich color and proof-like impression

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS MAGNIFICENT MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 1851 ONE-CENT TYPE IV IS GRADED GEM 100 JUMBO BY P.S.E., WHICH IS THE HIGHEST GRADE ATTAINABLE. THE ESSENCE OF PERFECTION.

Many collectors have a tendency to discount how difficult it is to find imperforate classics in such superb condition. The assumption is that there are multiples which can be split to "make" perfect singles. However, one would have to find a block of nine with no hinging in the surrounding stamps that are included in order to produce the Gem offered here. For all the imperforate issues (Scott 1-17), only six stamps in total have achieved this ultimate grade in Mint N.H. condition -- two of Scott 9 and four of Scott 11/11A.

Ex "Hanover". With 2007 P.S.E. certificate (Gem 100 Jumbo; unpriced in SMQ in Mint N.H. condition). Scott 9 is priced in the grade of 100, in hinged condition, at $11,000.00. This does not take into consideration any multiplier for Mint N.H. condition or for the Jumbo grade. Scott Retail as hinged

Sale Number 1211, Lot Number 180, 1851 1¢ Blue—Plate 1 Late, A spectacular cover with 1851 1¢ Type IV stamps paying the 10¢ transcontinental rate from California, including a block of six, all cancelled by the Downieville "Shell" cancel

1¢ Blue, Type IV (9), Positions 72-74/82-84R1L, horizontal block of six used with single and horizontal strip of three, Positions 62-64R1L, large margins to just in, tied by fancy cork cancel--the so-called "Shell"--clear strike of "Downieville Cal. Oct. 2" circular datestamp with month inverted on cover to John Bradbury in Boston, Massachusetts

Fine-Very Fine; certificate notes that the top left stamp of block and the strip each have "creases" and a small tear, but these negligible flaws are endemic to large multiples positioned along the top edge of a cover, and we would not call the minor wrinkles "creases" (we would call them wrinkles), and the tears are minute.

A remarkable cover, franked with a block of six, strip of three and single of the 1851 1¢ Type IV, used from California to Boston. Very few covers with blocks of this issue are known, and this is exceptionally beautiful.

This cover was included in the "Cleveland Album," a collection of United States covers formed in the 1890s and consigned to the Siegel firm in 1994. This cover is the mate to lot 193 in this sale (ex Caspary, Baker, Grunin and Kramer), which is from the same correspondence and shows the 10¢ rate prepaid with a block of four and strip of six 1¢ Type II stamps from Plate 2.

Ex "Cleveland Album", George J. Kramer and Joseph Hackmey. With 2003 P.F. certificate.
