Lot Symbol CatNo. Lot Description CV or Estimate
686 og W18B image#W18B, 1c Blue on white horizontally laid paper, star die, die 12, mint cut square measuring 25x53mm, the unique listing example whose appearance at our June 2000 auction of the fabulous Dr. Jerry Summers collection of mint cut squares resulted in the brand new major listing in the 2001 Scott Catalogue as #W18B, previously it had been sold as a paper variety, however its obvious white horizontally laid paper was so different than any of the other previously listed papers that it deserved separate recognition in the Scott Catalogue, subsequently the 2001 UPSS Catalog of the 19th Century Stamped Envelopes and Wrappers of the United States also listed this as existing only as a cut square, previously an entire wrapper was thought to exist but it is now believed that this is the unique example on this paper, fresh, very fine; 1978 PF certificate; ex-White, Sheriff, Norton, Summers and Floyd (UPSS #41A) (Image) 4,500.00

Closing..Dec-13, 09:00 AM

700 ogc U30 image#U30, 6c Red on white, star die, die 10, size, 21, knife 94, wmk. 1, an exceptionally rare mint star die entire, nice color and strong embossing, this is the only size envelope in which this value comes, some edge faults that are not obtrusive including tiny edge tear at far top left, otherwise very fine; seldom offered as an entire and this would yield a large, extremely fine cut square which is a rarity in its own right (UPSS #62).
