Positions 9-10R1E, horizontal combination pair with substantial portion of top right corner sheet margins helping to compensate for cut-into bottom, lovely Plate One Early shade and impression, bold grid cancels

A RARE COMBINATION PAIR OF THE ONE-CENT 1851 FROM PLATE ONE EARLY, INCLUDING TYPE Ib, SCOTT 5A, AND THE "DESIGN COMPLETE AT TOP" VARIETY OF TYPE II, POSITION 10R1E.

The Type Ib from Position 9R1E has a Scott value of $8,500.00. The rare Type II from Position 10R1E, which has the complete design at top, has a Scott value of $2,000.00 as a used single (vs. $170.00 for a normal Scott 7). The combination Type Ib-II pair is valued at $13,000.00, which presumably does not include the premium for 10R1E.

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB USED 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 $2,400.00 as 98, unpriced in 100 grade). 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.
