EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A BEAUTIFUL USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1851 IMPERFORATE ONE-CENT TYPE III FROM PLATE FOUR.

Type III is defined as having breaks in the outer lines at both top and bottom. Many Type III stamps have breaks that were created or enlarged by plate wear. Since the wear occurred over a period of time, the majority of stamps of this type (both unused and used) have small breaks in at least one line.

With 2015 P.S.E. certificate (XF 90; SMQ $6,000.00)

EXTREMELY FINE. AN EXCEEDINGLY RARE SUPERB UNUSED EXAMPLE OF THE 1855 10-CENT TYPE I IMPERFORATE.

This scarce stamp is extremely desirable because the defining characteristic of the type -- the full bottom right shell -- is fully visible within the large bottom margin. Type I stamps come from the bottom 20 positions of the plate. They are the only stamps to show the design complete at bottom. For some reason the sheet margin at bottom was often trimmed away, leaving a dearth of quality copies. The Type IV stamps come from only eight positions, but we would rank the two types equally in terms of the rarity of sound four-margin copies.

Ex Scarsdale. With 1971, 1994 and 2004 P.F. certificates
