Sale Number 1122, Lot Number 13, 1857-60 Issue (Scott 18-39)1c Blue, Ty. Ic (19b), 1c Blue, Ty. Ic (19b)1c Blue, Ty. Ic (19b). Plate 4, E Relief, deep rich color on crisp paper, choice centering, full perforations

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THE 1857 ONE-CENT TYPE Ic IS AN EXTREMELY DIFFICULT ISSUE TO OBTAIN IN SOUND AND CENTERED ORIGINAL-GUM CONDITION. THIS IS THE ONLY SOUND ORIGINAL-GUM SINGLE WE HAVE OFFERED SINCE KEEPING COMPUTERIZED RECORDS.

Type Ic is similar to Type Ia, which has the design complete at bottom, but the bottom right plume of Type Ic is incomplete. Two Type Ic positions are in the bottom row of Plate 4 (91R and 96R4, F Relief) and are listed under Scott 19b as the "best examples." Six or seven Type Ic positions are from E Relief positions on the plate, and these are listed in Scott as "less distinct" examples. The full detail of the bottom plumes was slightly erased either by plate burnishing prior to printing or plate wear during printing.

This stamp is far scarcer than its catalogue value would suggest, especially in sound well-centered condition. Power Search found only two singles, one with perfs partly trimmed and the other with faults. The on-line P.F. records contain only one other that compares favorably to the example offered here.

With 2006 P.F. certificate
