Sale Number 946, Lot Number 176, 1851-56 Issue (Scott 5-17)1c Blue, Ty. II (7), 1c Blue, Ty. II (7)1c Blue, Ty. II (7). Position 24 L1E, large to enormous margins all around, light blue circular datestamp and magnificent Plate 1 Early shade

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

With 2007 P.S.E. certificate (Superb 98; SMQ $2,400.00). Eight Scott No. 7's (1c Type II imperforate) have achieved the P.S.E. grade of Superb 98 or better, but 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.
