Sale 1247, Lot 22, 1851-56 Issue (Scott 5-17)1c Blue, Ty. Ia (6). Position 100L4, large margins all around including part of adjoining stamp at top, circular datestamp cancel leaves design clearly visible

EXTREMELY FINE. AN EXCEPTIONALLY BEAUTIFUL LARGE-MARGINED EXAMPLE OF THE IMPERFORATE 1851 ONE-CENT TYPE Ia, GRADED XF 90 BY P.S.E.

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 extremely 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).

With 1970, 2011 P.F. and 2013 P.S.E. certificates (XF 90; SMQ $18,000.00)

Sale 1247, Lot 35, 1851-56 Issue (Scott 5-17)3c Orange Red, Ty. II, Horizontal Roulettes and Perf 16 x 15-1/2 (11A var). Vertical pair, original gum, h.r., separate roulettes applied horizontally and perforations applied both horizontally and vertically, "cancelled" by intersecting ruled lines

FINE AND RARE PAIR OF THE 3-CENT 1851 ISSUE WITH BOTH ROULETTE AND PERF 16 x 15-1/2 TRIAL PERFORATIONS.

The Toppan, Carpenter & Co. trial perforations are discussed by Dr. Chase in his 3c book (pp. 174-175). This is a fascinating pair with a combination of approximately 7-1/2 gauge roulettes, as well as perf 16 horizontally (thru the stamps near bottom) and perf 15-1/2 vertically. Dr. Chase states that all these experiments used stamps from a late 1855 printing of Plate 2L.
