EXTREMELY FINE. A RARE SOUND AND WELL-CENTERED EXAMPLE OF THE ONE-CENT 1857 TYPE Ic.
This stamp is far scarcer than its catalogue or SMQ values would suggest, especially with four margins in sound condition.
With 2022 plating certificate from the One Cent Franklin Plating Archive. With 2023 P.S.E. certificate (VF-XF 85; SMQ $9,750.00). Only four used examples of Scott 19b have even been deemed worthy of P.S.E. grading by their owners. Apart from this VF-XF 85 grade, there exist single examples at 95, 80 and 70.
VERY FINE AND CHOICE. A BEAUTIFUL USED EXAMPLE OF THE RARE 1857 PERFORATED ONE-CENT TYPE Ic.
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 are found on the bottom row of Plate 4, and six or seven positions are from E Relief positions elsewhere on the plate. 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 with four margins in sound condition.

VERY FINE. A RARE SOUND AND WELL-CENTERED EXAMPLE OF THE ONE-CENT 1857 TYPE Ic.
This stamp is far scarcer than its catalogue value would suggest, especially with four margins in sound condition. It is likely that the paucity of copies trading hands has resulted in the catalogue value not being properly updated.
With 2020 P.S.E. certificate (VF 80; SMQ $2,750.00). Only three used examples of Scott 19b have even been deemed worthy of P.S.E. grading by their owners. Apart from this VF 80 grade, there exist a 95 and a 70
VERY FINE AND CHOICE. PROBABLY THE WIDEST-MARGINED EXAMPLE OF THE RARE TYPE Ic, WHICH IS THE SCARCEST TYPE OF THE PERFORATED ONE-CENT STAMP. NEINKEN NOTES THAT THIS POSITION -- 91R4 -- YIELDS THE BEST EXAMPLE OF TYPE Ic.
The defining characteristics of Type Ic are similar to that of Type Ia, Scott 19, which has the design complete at bottom and partly complete at top. The difference between Type Ia and Ic is that the bottom right plume on the Type Ic is incomplete. Neinken classifies it as a sub-type of Scott 19, and the Scott Catalogue gives it a separate listing. Neinken notes that only eight or nine positions yield this type. Of these, only two are found on the bottom row of the plate (Positions 91R4 and 96R4). The other six or seven Type Ic positions were created either by plate burnishing prior to use or plate wear during use.
Wide-spaced perforated stamps are extremely rare and highly desirable. 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 are seeking alternative explanations for its occurrence. Whatever the cause, they are considered extremely rare.
