Sale Number 1007, Lot Number 2147, 1c 1857-60 Issue (Scott 19b-24)1c Blue, Ty. V (24), 1c Blue, Ty. V (24)1c Blue, Ty. V (24). Position 95R7 from the bottom row, Jumbo perfectly balanced margins, bright color and sharp Plate 7 impression on crisp paper, light strike of circular datestamp

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 ONE-CENT PERFORATED TYPE V. THIS IS THE WIDEST-MARGINED EXAMPLE WE HAVE EVER ENCOUNTERED.

Wide side margins are the norm for 1c Type V stamps printed from Plates 5 and 7 to 10, but the enormous and balanced top and bottom margins on this example are extremely unusual. The stamp was printed from Plate 7, one of the first of the Type V plates and one that produced sharp clear impressions. A few bottom-row stamps from Plates 5 and 7 show wide-spaced horizontal perforations, comparable to the wide-spaced stamps from Plate 4.

With 2010 P.S.E. certificate (XF-Superb 95 Jumbo; SMQ $435.00 as 95, $1,400.00 as 98). This is the highest grade awarded to date and is shared by only two others. We frankly believe this is under-graded. In our opinion the grade should be Superb 98 Jumbo, if not Gem 100 Jumbo. Accompanied by the cover from which the stamp originated
