Sale Number 1192, Lot Number 72, 1851-56 Issue (Scott 5-17)1c Blue, Ty. Ib (5A), 1c Blue, Ty. Ib (5A)1c Blue, Ty. Ib (5A). Position 6R1E, large margins to clear including top sheet margin, light strike of "Davenport Iowa Dec. 10" circular datestamp, some small faults

VERY FINE APPEARING EXAMPLE OF THE RARE 1851 ONE-CENT TYPE Ib FROM PLATE ONE EARLY, FROM ONE OF THE TWO POSITIONS THAT FURNISHED THE BEST EXAMPLES OF THE TYPE.

Type Ib was produced only as an imperforate stamp from Plate 1 Early. Six positions on Plate 1E 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 2018 P.S.E. certificate

Position 9R1E, large margins to just in showing part of sheet margin and full ornaments at top, rich Plate 1E color, perfectly struck blue "Philadelphia Pa. Dec. 29" (1851) circular datestamp, very faint and small internal crease

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. ONLY SIX POSITIONS FROM PLATE ONE EARLY FURNISHED TYPE Ib STAMPS.

Type Ib was produced only as an imperforate stamp. 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. These top-row positions usually have an ample top margin, but frequently the margins are close or cutting into the sides or bottom.

Ex Jonathan Rose. With 1999 A.P.S. and 2018 P.S.E. certificates as sound

Sale Number 1192, Lot Number 74, 1851-56 Issue (Scott 5-17)1c Blue, Ty. Ia (6), 1c Blue, Ty. Ia (6)1c Blue, Ty. Ia (6). Rich Plate 4 color on bright paper, large margins to touched, unobtrusive cancel at bottom right leaves entire design clearly visible

FINE AND ATTRACTIVE USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1851 ONE-CENT TYPE Ia IMPERFORATE, SCOTT 6.

Stamps printed from Plate 4 were issued in April, May and briefly in June 1857 before perforations were introduced. The relatively small number of imperforate Plate 4 stamps issued during this period explains the rarity and desirability of any of the imperforate stamp types produced from this plate (Ia, Ic, II, III and IIIa). The rare Type Ia, showing the full design at bottom, was furnished only by 18 of the 200 subjects on Plate 4 (the remaining two bottom-row positions were sub-type Ic).
