Sale Number 1075, Lot Number 1039, 1851-56 Issue3c Claret, Ty. I (11). Mint N.H, 3c Claret, Ty. I (11). Mint N.H3c Claret, Ty. I (11). Mint N.H., Position 70R4, huge margins all around incl. "Toppan, Carpenter" portion of imprint at right and part of five adjoining stamps, brilliant color and detailed impression

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 1851 3-CENT CLARET TYPE I WITH IMPRINT SHEET MARGIN AT RIGHT.

Although the 3c 1851 is by no means a rare stamp, there are very few examples in Mint Never-Hinged condition. Considering the Mint N.H. state of the stamp offered here, together with its extraordinary margins and part imprint, we will make the bold claim that this is the finest 3c 1851 extant with original gum.

2001 P.F. certificate no longer accompanies. Scott Retail as hinged
