Position 8R1E, stitch watermark, large margins to barely in including part of top sheet margin, pretty early shade, neat strike of small Boston "Paid" grid cancel, small thins

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. AN ATTRACTIVE EXAMPLE OF THIS RARE AND DESIRABLE TYPE. ONE OF THE TWO BEST TYPE Ib POSITIONS ON THE PLATE.

Type Ib was produced only as an imperforate stamp and does not have a perforated counterpart. Six positions on Plate 1 Early furnished stamps qualifying as Type Ib -- Positions 3-6R and 8-9R -- distinguished by the complete design at top and nearly complete design at bottom. When first entered on the plate, these six positions (as well as 7R1E) had the complete design at top and bottom. However, unlike 7R, small portions of the bottoms were burnished away. Positions 6R and 8R had less of the bottom erased than the other Type Ib positions, and for this reason they are more desirable examples of the type.

With 2010 P.F. certificate

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. AN OUTSTANDING USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1856 5-CENT RED BROWN WITH HUGE EVEN MARGINS ON ALL SIDES. CONSERVATIVELY GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E.

In our opinion, this stamp should have been graded at least Superb 98. Unlike many examples of the 5c 1856, this stamp has evenly-cut, essentially parallel margins, forming a true rectangular frame around the perimeter of the design. We cannot imagine grading this stamp at any number less than 98. To draw your own conclusion, use Power Search to find other examples graded 95 or better, and make your comparison.
