Plate 11, B Relief from the bottom row with intact bottom selvage, beautifully centered with margins clear of design on all sides, dark color on brilliant white paper, well-struck blue Batavia N.Y. circular datestamp

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THE ONE-CENT TYPE IIIa PERFORATED ISSUE CANCELLED IN BLUE. A TRUE CONDITION RARITY GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E.

Plates 11 and 12 were probably made in June 1860, with less than six months left in Toppan Carpenter's contract. The earliest known use from either plate is January 1861, a relatively short time before the stamps were demonetized. As illustrations of stamps from Plates 11 and 12 in the Neinken book show, the centering and impressions of stamps from these plates were rather poor ("Poor perforating was the rule rather than the exception" -- Neinken book, p. 473). The stamp offered here, with bright color, balanced margins and a clear blue cancel, is truly remarkable.

Ex Dr. Hinrichs. With 1994, 2003 P.F. and 2016 P.S.E. certificates (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $5,550.00). Only two examples grade higher (at 95J, ex "Natalee Grace" and ex Kirke -- both have black cancels)

Sale Number 1216, Lot Number 105, 1c 1857 Perforated Issue: Plate 41c Blue, Ty. IIIa (22), 1c Blue, Ty. IIIa (22)1c Blue, Ty. IIIa (22). Position 41L4 with “(Carp)enter, Casilear & Co. BANK NOTE” part imprint and “N” of plate number in left selvage, crisp impression, neat manuscript “X” cancel, completely sound

VERY FINE. THIS IS BELIEVED TO BE THE ONLY PERFORATED 1857 ONE-CENT STAMP SHOWING PART OF THE PLATE 4 NUMBER AT LEFT. A GREAT RARITY.

The Neinken book (p. 277) states that “No stamp, imperforate or perforated, showing the imprint and the plate number ‘4’ from the left pane has ever been recorded.” He also notes that apart from this stamp there are only two other perforated examples known from this same position, but that both show only a small part of the imprint. This is, therefore, the only perforated example which shows any part of the left plate number.

Illustrated in Neinken book (p. 278). Ex Neinken and Wagshal. With 2011 P.F. certificate
