EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 12-CENT 1857 ISSUE FROM PLATE 3.

The most recent scholarship regarding the Toppan, Carpenter, Casilear & Co. plates used to print the 12c 1851-57 Issue is clearly articulated by James A. Allen in "The 1851 Imperforate (Scott U.S. #17): Plating Updated and Additional New Findings" (The 1851 Issue of United States Stamps: a Sesquicentennial Retrospective, U.S. Philatelic Classics Society). Traditionally, the 12c plates are identified as Plate 1 (from which all imperforate and some perforated stamps were printed), Plate 2 (evidently never used) and Plate 3 (which produced stamps that were only regularly issued with perforations). It is highly probable that Plate "3" was the first one made in 1851, but it was put aside and not used until 1859.

Plate 3 stamps (Scott 36b) are characterized primarily by uneven or broken outer framelines of the design. The subjects on Plate 1, which produced Scott Nos. 17 and 36, have even framelines that were extensively recut. Original-gum Plate 3 stamps with the centering and wide margins evident in this example are very scarce.

Ex Hansen. 2000 P.F. certificate no longer accompanies. With 2011 P.S.E. certificate (OGph, XF-Superb 95; SMQ $4,250.00). Only one has graded higher (at 98)

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THE PERFORATED 12-CENT 1857 ISSUE IS EXCEEDINGLY RARE IN SUPERB ORIGINAL-GUM CONDITION. THIS STAMP EASILY RANKS AS ONE OF THE FINEST COPIES EXTANT.
