Position 97R4, unusually choice centering for this difficult issue with wide and balanced margins, deep rich color and proof-like impression on bright paper, neat strike of large Boston "Paid" grid leaves the type's defining characteristics clearly visible

EXTREMELY FINE. A SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 ONE-CENT PERFORATED TYPE Ia. THIS IS ONE OF THE SCARCEST AND MOST DESIRABLE TYPES OF THE ISSUE.

Plate 4's most distinctive feature is that the top row (Positions 1-10L and 1-10R) was entered with the designs complete at top (Type II) and the bottom row (Positions 91-100L and 91-100R) was entered with designs complete or nearly complete at bottom (Types Ia and Ic). Although the plate layout provided sufficient space for perforations, the height of the top-row and bottom-row designs was larger than others in the sheet, which resulted in perforations cutting into either the top or bottom rows, depending on which direction the sheet was fed into the perforator. Type Ia and Ic stamps from the bottom row are almost always cut into at bottom, an unfortunate situation for collectors because the bottom part of the design is what makes Type Ia and Ic stamps desirable.

Ashbrook states: "I consider perforated Type Ia stamps that are not touched by perforations as the rarest stamps in the 1857 perforated issue." (Neinken book, p. 279). The Scott Catalogue contains a footnote: "Copies of this stamp exist with perforations not touching the design at any point. Such copies command very high prices."

Ex "Natalee Grace" and Curtis. With 1998 and 2014 P.F. certificates. With 2009 P.S.E. certificate (XF 90; SMQ $32,000.00). Only three grade higher, including the famous Zoellner-Hinrichs copy with wide-spaced perforations (graded 98J).

FRESH AND FINE. A SCARCE SOUND EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 PERFORATED ONE-CENT TYPE Ia.

Type Ia was produced by only 18 of the 20 bottom-row positions on Plate 4. Although Plate 4 was designed with sufficient space to accommodate perforations, the height of the top row and bottom row positions resulted in the perforations often cutting into the design at either top or bottom. For this reason, stamps from the bottom row of Plate 4 with perforations slightly into the design are still desirable.

Position 92R4, F Relief, rich color and proof-like impression, wide-spaced perforations at top and bottom, light strike of circular datestamp, thin spots top left and along lower left

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. AN EXCEEDINGLY RARE EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 ONE-CENT TYPE Ia WITH WIDE-SPACED PERFORATIONS. EXAMPLES WITH WIDE-SPACED PERFORATIONS ARE EXTREMELY RARE AND DESIRABLE.

The exceptions to the normal cut-into condition of top-row and bottom-row Plate 4 stamps are those with wide-spaced perforations. It has been assumed for years that the pins of the bottom row of the perforator were reset to create more space, but some students of the 1851-57 Issue have begun to reexamine this aspect of Plate 4 production to seek alternative explanations for wide-spaced perforations. Whatever the cause, wide-spaced stamps are extremely rare and highly desirable, because they exhibit all of the features that define their respective types.

Ashbrook states: “I consider perforated Type Ia stamps that are not touched by perforations as the rarest stamps in the 1857 perforated issue.” (Neinken book, p. 279). The Scott Catalogue contains a footnote to the basic price quotes: “Copies of this stamp exist with perforations not touching the design at any point. Such copies command very high prices.”

Illustrated in Neinken book (p. 281). Ex Neinken and Wagshal. With 2011 P.F. certificate. Scott Retail for normal Type Ia

Position 92L4, deep rich color and proof-like impression on bright paper, unusually choice centering with wide and balanced margins, clearly showing the type characteristics, neat strike of circular datestamp at right

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS IS WITHOUT QUESTION ONE OF THE FINEST USED EXAMPLES OF THE RARE 1857 ONE-CENT TYPE Ia PERFORATED. THIS REMARKABLE STAMP IS GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E. -- APART FROM THE FAMOUS WIDE-SPACED EXAMPLE, THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED.

Type Ia stamps were produced from 18 of the 20 bottom-row positions on Plate 4. After perforations were introduced in mid-1857, sheets on hand printed from Plates 1 Late and 2 were fed through the new perforating machine, but the narrow spaces between stamps made perforating difficult to accomplish without cutting into the designs. Plate 4 was produced in early 1857 when the introduction of perforations was anticipated; thus, it was entered from a new six-relief transfer roll, and the spaces between stamps were enlarged to allow for perforations. Some Plate 4 sheets were issued in imperforate form (April to June 1857), while the greater portion was issued perforated beginning in July 1857, along with perforated sheets from Plates 1L and 2.

Plate 4's most distinctive feature is that the top row (Positions 1-10L and 1-10R) was entered with the designs complete at top (Type II) and the bottom row (Positions 91-100L and 91-100R) was entered with designs complete or nearly complete at bottom (Types Ia and Ic). Although the plate layout provided sufficient space for perforations, the height of the top-row and bottom-row designs was larger than others in the sheet, which resulted in perforations cutting into either the top or bottom rows, depending on which direction the sheet was fed into the perforator. Type Ia and Ic stamps from the bottom row are almost always cut into at bottom, an unfortunate situation for collectors because the bottom part of the design is what makes Type Ia and Ic stamps desirable.

The example offered here, with perforations completely clear of the design and showing the full type characteristics at bottom, is a true condition rarity.

Ex Bowman. With 1990 and 1999 P.F. certificates, the former as on cover with two Scott 24 (cover with other stamps accompanies). With 2008 P.S.E. certificate (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $92,500.00). Only one has graded higher (the wide-setting copy, ex Eno, Zoellner, Hinrichs and "Tahoe", graded 98J) and one other shares this desirable grade.
