Sale Number 1187, Lot Number 60, 1857-60 Issue (Scott 18-39)1c Blue, Ty. Ia (19), 1c Blue, Ty. Ia (19)1c Blue, Ty. Ia (19). Unused (no gum), perfs scissors-separated but mostly intact, choice centering for this difficult issue, showing the type characteristics very well, trivial toned spot at bottom right, small thin spot in Franklin's head

FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE UNUSED EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 PERFORATED ONE-CENT TYPE Ia.

Type Ia was produced by only 18 of the 20 bottom-row positions on Plate 4. Although Plate 4 was designed with sufficient space to accommodate perforations, the height of the top row and bottom row positions resulted in the perforations often cutting into the design at either top or bottom. For this reason, stamps from the bottom row of Plate 4 with perforations slightly into the design are still desirable.

With 1961 P.F. certificate as sound. Scott Retail as no gum

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 ONE-CENT TYPE III, GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E.

Due to the narrow vertical spacing on this plate, stamps are most typically found with the perforations impinging on a portion of the design. The example offered here is centered so that the breaks in both the bottom and top lines are clearly visible.

Ex Kirke. With 1994 P.F. and 2005 P.S.E. certificates (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $9,7500.00). None grade higher.

Position 45L4, rich color and bright paper, sharp impression, light strike of town datestamp, beautifully centered with clear break at top, bottom break is visible to us despite the cancel crossing that area (see certificate descriptions below)

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A GORGEOUS EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 ONE-CENT PERFORATED TYPE III.

Due to narrow spacing on the plate, examples of this type often have the perforations cutting into the outer lines at either top or bottom or both. The example offered here clearly presents the characteristics of the type.

With 2001 P.F. certificate noting the plating, which is independently confirmed by expert Richard Celler. With 2017 P.S.E. certificate not noting plating and describing this as Type IIIa (Scott 22), which it clearly is not. Also accompanied by No. 466 Mint N.H., reperfed

FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE AND AFFORDABLE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT BRICK RED.

After surveying dozens of classic United States sale catalogues, we found approximately 25 examples of Scott 27 with original gum, allowing for duplicate offerings and excluding the one known original-gum block. Of the stamps we counted, about half had perfs touching on two sides or were deeply cut into on one side. Almost two-thirds had stains or faults. This is a very presentable example of this rare stamp.

With 1971 P.F. certificate

Unused (regummed), marvelous deep color, centered to left with perfs slightly into outer projection, few tiny perf flaws at bottom and lower right are not particularly noticeable

FINE APPEARANCE. AN EXTREMELY RARE UNUSED EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT 1857 BRIGHT RED BROWN SHADE.

This is only the second unused example of the sub-listed Bright Red Brown shade variety of Scott 28 we have offered. In our analysis of the 5c 1856-61 printings, we consider the Bright Red Brown (28b) and Indian Red (28A) to be in the same printing family. The Bright Red Brown shade is usually the default classification for a stamp that does not have sufficiently intense color to receive an Indian Red classification, but the difference is very subtle. In fact, unused examples of the Bright Red Brown (Scott 28b) shade appear to be rarer than the Indian Red.
