EXTREMELY FINE APPEARANCE. AN EXCEEDINGLY RARE UNUSED BLOCK OF THE ONE-CENT 1851 ISSUE FROM PLATE ONE LATE, CONTAINING THE ONLY TYPE II POSITION ON THE PLATE.

Position 4R1L is the only position on the plate that was not recut on Plate 1 Late, thus producing a Type II stamp. Unused multiples containing 4R1L are very rare. This block of four was originally joined with the block of six from Positions 6-7/16-18R1L offered in the following lot.

Scott Retail for No. 7-9 unused combination pair with gum is $3,900.00. Value for an ordinary No. 9 block with gum is $5,750.00.

Sale Number 998, Lot Number 69, Plate One Late - Position 4R1L Type II and Block with 7R1L1c Blue, Ty. IV (9), 1c Blue, Ty. IV (9)1c Blue, Ty. IV (9). Positions 6-8/16-18R1L, unused (no gum) block of six, 6-7R recut once at bottom, 8R recut twice at bottom, bottom row recut once at top and bottom, Position 7R1L is the recut version of Type I on Plate 1 Early (Scott 5) and in this state still shows much of the bottom right plume, large margins including part of top sheet margin, deep shade, bright and fresh, vertical crease along left side, a few small stain spots on back

EXTREMELY FINE APPEARANCE. A MAGNIFICENT UNUSED BLOCK OF THE ONE-CENT 1851 ISSUE FROM PLATE ONE EARLY, CONTAINING POSITION 7R, WHICH IN ITS EARLIER STATE FURNISHED THE ONLY TYPE I IMPERFORATE ONE-CENT STAMP.

This block was originally joined with the block of Positions 4-5/14-15R1L offered in the preceding lot. The top row of Plate 1 Late was, with the exception of Position 4R1L, recut and transformed into Type IV's. However, the top row right pane positions still retained many of their fascinating features from Plate 1 Early. Among these is Position 7R, which on the early state of the plate produced the only imperforate Type I, Scott No. 5. On Plate 1 Late, most of 7R's unique characteristics are still present: the design is complete at top and still shows the distinctive double transfer at top right; it is almost complete at bottom with only a small part of the balls erased; and the plumes are essentially intact, especially on early printings.
