Sale Number 998, Lot Number 422, Plate Four Imprint Examples1c Blue, Ty. IIIa (8A), 1c Blue, Ty. IIIa (8A)1c Blue, Ty. IIIa (8A). Position 50R4 with very wide break in line at top, unused (no gum), huge margins all around with part of imprint at right, deep rich color and spectacular proof-like impression

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB AND EXTREMELY RARE UNUSED EXAMPLE OF THE TYPE IIIa IMPERFORATE ONE-CENT 1851 ISSUE WITH IMPRINT.

The Neinken book states "Stamps from Plate 4 showing part of the imprint are very rare. Ashbrook states that he has never seen an imperforate vertical pair with the imprint..." (p. 277). There are probably fewer than six unused Type IIIa stamps that show any part of the imprint.

With 1988 and 1994 P.F. certificates. Scott Retail with no premium for the imprint

Sale Number 998, Lot Number 423, Plate Four Imprint Examples1c Blue, Ty. IIIa/III (8A/8), 1c Blue, Ty. IIIa/III (8A/8)1c Blue, Ty. IIIa/III (8A/8). Positions 60/70R4, vertical pair with right sheet margin and part of imprint, huge margins at left and bottom, top stamp Type IIIa is cut in and creased but left intact because of imprint, bottom stamp is a strong Type III position with wide break at bottom and substantial break at top, huge margins, rich color

A RARE IMPERFORATE ONE-CENT 1851 TYPE IIIa/III PAIR FROM PLATE 4 WITH PART OF THE IMPRINT AT RIGHT. THE TYPE III IS AN EXTREMELY FINE GEM.

The Neinken book states, "Stamps from Plate 4 showing part of the imprint are very rare." Looking at the layout of Plate 4 (Neinken book, page 263), the imprint position types are as follows: left pane 31/41L Type IIIa, 51L Type IIIa-III, 61L Type III; right pane 40R Type III, 50/60R Type IIIa, 70R Type III. Therefore, only Positions 61L, 40R and 70R4 are Type III imprint positions (51L is a "swing" position with a smaller break).
