Sale Number 1032, Lot Number 3014, 1c 1851-56 Issue (Scott 5A-9)1c Blue, Ty. II (7), 1c Blue, Ty. II (7)1c Blue, Ty. II (7). Plate 1E, large to enormous margins including parts of adjoining stamps at sides, marvelous rich color and magnificent impression complemented by bright red grid cancel

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THE IMPERFORATE 1851 ONE-CENT TYPE II FROM PLATE ONE EARLY. ESPECIALLY DESIRABLE WITH THE VIVID RED CANCEL.

With 2001 P.F. and 2003 P.S.E. certificates (Superb 98 Jumbo; SMQ $1,850.00 as 98, unpriced in higher grades). The P.S.E. Population Report does not break down the 1c 1851's by plate. We are quite sure that the more desirable and scarcer Plate 1E stamps are much rarer in high grades than their Type II counterparts from other plates.
