Plate 12, C Relief, perfect centering which clearly shows the characteristics of the type, deep rich color, razor-sharp impression on pristine paper, pretty strike of red "New York Paid City Delivery" carrier circular datestamp

EXTREMELY FINE USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 PERFORATED ONE-CENT TYPE I. THE RED NEW YORK CITY CARRIER DATESTAMP ADDS EXTRA EYE APPEAL.

The defining characteristic of Type I is that the entire design is printed, including the scrolls and plumes at bottom. Type I perforated stamps are only known from certain positions on Plate 12. Due to the narrow spacing between perforations and difficulties of production, this type is usually found with part of the design cut off by the perforations. The example offered here, with bright color, a vivid red carrier cancel and with the design characteristics clearly visible, is a true condition rarity.

Ex Dr. Hinrichs and featured on the front cover of our Sale 1166. With 1999 and 2017 P.F. certificates

Sale Number 1216, Lot Number 133, 1c 1857 Perforated Issue: Plates 11-121c Blue, Quasi-Type Ia (18 var), 1c Blue, Quasi-Type Ia (18 var)1c Blue, Quasi-Type Ia (18 var). Position 56L12 which shows complete design at bottom and erasures of part of the design at top, also a double transfer, rich color nicely complemented by red New York City carrier datestamp

VERY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL USED EXAMPLE OF POSITION 56L12, WHICH PRODUCED A DESIGN TYPE THAT DEFIES CURRENT SCOTT CLASSIFICATION -- THE BOTTOM IS COMPLETE, BUT THE TOP IS PARTLY ERASED. WE REFER TO THIS AS A QUASI-TYPE Ia, BECAUSE IT COMES CLOSEST TO TYPE Ia FROM THE BOTTOM OF PLATE FOUR.

Position 56L12 was discussed in an article by Jerome S. Wagshal (“The One Cent Stamp of 1851-57: A Reconsideration of Types I Through IIIa”, 1973 Congress Book, pp. 113-115), in which he presented his case for reclassifying some of the 1c 1851-57 types. Regarding Position 56L12, Wagshal opined, “[it] requires separate recognition. Its characteristics are unlike those of any other position on any plate of the One Cent stamp. Judged by the standards which are the basis of the One Cent classification system, 56L12 must be given a separate status as a subtype of Type I.”

Ex Wagshal. With 2011 P.F. certificate as No. 18 var, describing the complete design at bottom and erasures at top

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 PERFORATED ONE-CENT TYPE I. A RARE STAMP IN SUCH SUPERB CONDITION.

The defining characteristic of Type I is that the entire design is printed, including the scrolls and plumes at bottom. Among the plates used to print imperforate stamps, only one position out of 1,000 can claim that honor (Position 7R1E, Scott No. 5). Type I perforated stamps are only known from certain positions on Plate 12. Due to the narrow spacing between perforations and difficulties of production, this issue is usually found with part of the design cut off by the perforations. The example offered here, with rich color, a clear cancel and with the design characteristics clearly visible, is a true condition rarity.

Ex Merlin. With 2005 P.S.E. certificate (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $7,000.00). This is the highest grade awarded and seven others share it.
