EXTREMELY FINE GEM. WITHOUT QUESTION THIS IS ONE OF THE FINEST USED EXAMPLES OF THE 1857 PERFORATED ONE-CENT TYPE III IN EXISTENCE, GRADED SUPERB 98 BY THE PHILATELIC FOUNDATION. A GORGEOUS STAMP IN EVERY RESPECT -- CENTERING, COLOR, IMPRESSION, PERFORATIONS AND CANCELLATION.

Ex Knapp (acquired by a previous owner in that long-ago sale and kept in the dark for a half-century, thus the incredibly rich color and freshness). With ungraded 2011 P.S.E. certificate. With 2007 and 2011 P.F. certificates (Superb 98). By way of comparison, the highest grade awarded by P.S.E. is a 95, and it is unpriced above that grade in SMQ

Sale Number 1216, Lot Number 101, 1c 1857 Perforated Issue: Plate 1 Late, Plate 21c Blue, Ty. III, Position 99R2 (21), 1c Blue, Ty. III, Position 99R2 (21)1c Blue, Ty. III, Position 99R2 (21). Rich color, face-free strike of circular datestamp, light diagonal crease at bottom left

VERY FINE APPEARING EXAMPLE OF THE EXTREMELY RARE PERFORATED ONE-CENT 1857 ISSUE FROM POSITION 99R2.

On Plate 2, 198 of the 200 positions were Type II. Position 100R was Type II in the early stage of the plate, but as wear began to weaken the bottom line, it became Type IIIa with a small break at bottom. Positions 89R and 99R on Plate 2 have been the focus of special attention, because of their unusual nature. Ashbrook states: “A study of the double transfers of 89R2 and 99R2 is most interesting, because here in a vertical pair of positions we have two distinct varieties... The 99R2 stamp is a fresh entry that was short transferred both at top and bottom over an original entry that had been erased... The stamp, 89R2, is a re-entry, but not in the proper sense of this term, because the re-entry on the lower part of this position was an error, as it was not made to correct an existent fault of the original 89R transfer.”

Plate 2 stamps were issued imperforate from December 1855 through June 1857. Beginning in July 1857 stamps from Plates 1 Late, 2 and 4 were issued with perforations, and Plates 2 and 4 continued to produce stamps through late 1857. Plate 2 stamps are rarer perforated than in imperforate form; conversely, Plate 4 stamps are rarer imperforate than in perforated form. However, perforated 99R2 stamps are of extreme rarity.

Our census, which incorporates the records of noted student Jerome S. Wagshal, The Philatelic Foundation, the Levi records and our own work, is available at our website at https://siegelauctions.com/census/us/scott/21-99R2 . Only two unused examples are known--the better known is in a block of nine in our 2019 William H. Gross Multiples sale. 13 used singles are recorded, as are three on covers and two in strips, for a total of 20 known in any form. Virtually all have faults or are very off-center--only three off-cover singles and one on cover are confirmed as sound and not all have decent centering.

Census no. 21(99R2)-CAN-04. Ex Wagshal. With 1986 P.F. certificate

Sale Number 1216, Lot Number 106, 1c 1857 Perforated Issue: Plate 41c Blue, Ty. III (21), 1c Blue, Ty. III (21)1c Blue, Ty. III (21). Positions 61-62L4, horizontal pair with “(Bo)ston & Cincinnati” portion of imprint at left, deep color, unobtrusive circular datestamp cancels

FINE. THIS IS THE ONLY REPORTED PERFORATED STAMP FROM THIS POSITION SHOWING THE END OF THE LEFT IMPRINT. A GREAT RARITY.

Parts of the left imprint can be seen on Positions 31, 41, 51 and 61L. No copies are known showing the full plate number--the closest one can get is the stamp offered in lot 105. This is the only recorded perforated example which shows the bottom of the imprint at left.

Ex Wagshal. With 1980 and 2011 P.F. certificates.
