Table of Contents

1851 1¢-5¢ Issues

Lot 1683 o   

1851, 1¢ blue, type III, position 99R2, town cancel, large margins clearly showing wide breaks at top and bottom, strong bold color, filled thin and creases, Extremely Fine appearance; with 2000 A.P.S. certificate.
Scott No. 8    $12,500.

The 99R2 was a fresh entry over an original entry on the plate (portions of which can be seen in the right scrolls), which was short transferred at both the top and bottom. Because of this very short transfer at top and bottom of the design, it produced the widest breaks in the top and bottom outer lines, giving us the finest example of type III.
