Sale Number 821, Lot Number 235, 1c 1851 Issue1c Blue, Ty. Ib (5A), 1c Blue, Ty. Ib (5A)1c Blue, Ty. Ib (5A). Position 6R1E, large top sheet margin, large margin at right, just touching at upper left and slightly in at bottom, wonderful bright early shade and proof-like impression, grid cancel

VERY FINE EXAMPLE OF POSITION 6R1E, ONE OF THE TWO POSITIONS THAT FURNISHED THE BEST TYPE IB EXAMPLES, SHOWING THE COMPLETE DESIGN AT TOP AND NEARLY COMPLETE DESIGN AT BOTTOM.

Type Ib was produced only as an imperforate stamp. Six positions on Plate 1 Early furnished stamps qualifying as Type Ib--Positions 3-6R and 8-9R--distinguished by the complete design at top and nearly complete design at bottom. When first entered on the plate, these six positions (as well as 7R1E) had the complete design at top and bottom. However, unlike 7R, small portions of the bottoms were burnished away. Positions 6R and 8R had less of the bottom erased than the other Type Ib positions, and for this reason they are more desirable examples of the type.

With Ashbrook note
