Sale Number 1192, Lot Number 58, 1847 Issue (Scott 1-2)5c Orange Brown, Double Transfer Ty. C (1b-C), 5c Orange Brown, Double Transfer Ty. C (1b-C)5c Orange Brown, Double Transfer Ty. C (1b-C). Original gum, h.r., three large margins, just in at top, radiant color, clearly showing the double transfer in the bottom frameline and lower part of left frameline, light diagonal gum bend not mentioned on accompanying certificate

FINE. AN EXCEEDINGLY RARE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT 1847 ISSUE WITH THE TYPE C DOUBLE TRANSFER. THIS IS THE ONLY UNUSED EXAMPLE WE HAVE ENCOUNTERED. A PHENOMENAL RARITY.

In the August 1995 Chronicle, Jerome S. Wagshal summarized previous articles on this double transfer. It was first discovered by Dan Hammatt around 1920. Mr. Wagshal recorded a total of 13-1/2 copies (one is a half-stamp in a strip), including two pairs. This is the only unused example in his census. He also echoes Ashbrook's theory that this and the Double Transfer Type D were created when the plate was reworked some time in late 1850 and were only part of the Fifth Delivery from RWH&E in December 1850. This would account for their scarcity compared to the Type A and B double transfers, and it seems to be confirmed by the two examples known on cover, which were described by Ashbrook as 1851 uses. The distinctive Orange Brown shade also points to the Fifth Delivery.

With 1969 P.F. certificate. We have offered only three used singles and one used pair since keeping computerized records. Unpriced in Scott, which prices the significantly more available Type B double transfer at $50,000.00 with original gum.
