Sale Number 998, Lot Number 100, Plate One Late Inverted Transfers1c Blue, Ty. IV (9), 1c Blue, Ty. IV (9)1c Blue, Ty. IV (9). Position 71L1L, triple transfer, one inverted, recut twice at top and once at bottom (only four such recuts on plate), original gum, h.r., large margins including part of left sheet margin which shows many lines of the inverted transfer vignette, deep rich color and unusually sharp impression (clearly an early printing from Plate 1 Late), bright and fresh paper

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. AN OUTSTANDING ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF ONE OF THE THREE TRIPLE TRANSFER/ONE INVERTED POSITIONS ON PLATE ONE LATE.

The inverted transfers on Positions 71L, 81L and 91L were made after the top row of the right pane of Plate 1 Early was entered from the Type I single-relief transfer roll. According to Richard Celler's theory, the three inverted transfers were made from a Type I design 3-relief transfer roll as a sort of trial after the top row entries had been made and the plate was turned around 180 degrees. When another plate ("Plate 0") had to be discarded, the siderographer returned to Plate 1 and erased the three inverted transfers before completing the plate with entries surrounding 3R to 10R. On Plate 1 Early, Positions 71L and 81L are double transfers. Position 91L was entered a total of three times, so it is a triple transfer, one inverted. When the plate was reworked in 1852, 71L and 81L were re-entered (but not 91L), making them all triple transfers, one inverted. The stamp offered here comes from Position 71L on Plate 1 Late.

With 2004 P.F. certificate.
