I recently purchased this from the good Dr. DiComo.

Sharing: Scarce choice XF U.S. 3 Cents 1857-1860 Plate 9, early state with much going for it!

#26, Deep Rose Brown from Sept./Oct. 1857, Relief F, bottom row copy with Chase-notations on reverse denoting "Slip 'J' Bottom Row".
I have plated this to 100R9e, which has a complete doubling of the left frame line from top to bottom, a partial doubling of right frame line seen at bottom, and the known frame line slip No. 18 - which at the time when Chase discovered he referred to as "J"

Stamp cancelled with a neat blue manuscript "X" mark, which does not detract from viewing overall design and impression.

Also has a slight "offset" on the reverse, from when newly printed pane was placed atop the pile of recently still "damp" printed panes.

Note: DiComo also identified another frame line slip (he is calling No. 18a) of the right frame line opposite the UR rosette, which on later copies is not easily visible. The engraver tried to strengthen the RFL and slipped a few times.

Overall: a stellar example of Plate 9e, deep color and early impression, with engravers slips, LFL doubling, offset on reverse, Dr. Chase notation, light manuscript colored cancel, four margins all around, no thins, no tears, etc. "They do not come any better than this" - Charles DiComo

Enjoy!
Stan Shepp



Relief F-Used for the sixth and tenth horizontal rows. The stamps from the sixth row usually show a guide dot near the lower right corner. At the top, the line defining the top of the white oval shows a tiny break squarely below the interval between the S and P of POSTAGE. At the bottom, there is a break the same, or almost exactly the same, as in Relief E. The E and F Reliefs are the most difficult to tell apart.

Sharing a perforated 3c 1857 - #26A

This was listed as a #26 ($11 on cover), but it is clearly a #26A ($225 on cover) and it has the doubled frame line on the left (not listed on cover, but a single jumps from $150 without this recut line to $225 with the recut frame line) and it has a nice N.Y. & BOSTON STMB & R.R.R. - New York & Boston Steamboat & Rail Road Route.

There are plenty of positions that display a shadow of a second frame line - and are often described as such. When you see an actual second frame line, it's like a light bulb going on. Clearly, a complete, full strength, second frame line.

It has a lot going for it - but the condition of the stamp is poor. :(

I have not plated it, but it is going to be one of the following positions based upon what relief it is:

Relief C - 70R11
Relief D - 80R11
Relief E - 90R11
Relief F - 100R11

Sharing top row #26 on cover.

Top row #26 with the damaged relief above the Lower Left Rosette - and a nice cancel to boot! N.Y. & BOSTON STMB & R.R.R. - New York & Boston Steamboat & Rail Road Route.

This color looks very much like Plum, but I believe it might be grayish claret. :( Were the perforated stamps printed in 'grayish claret'?

There is a small dot on the left frame line, right about upper rosette high. I couldn't match it to Hegland's chart, so maybe just a stray ink spot.

Sharing -

71L18 - Scott #26 "The Big Crack" on cover.

It starts on the left, about a quarter of the way down, and cracks George right in the middle of the forehead. It is hard to miss. Hence the nickname - "Big Crack"

Stan,

Your #26A looks like it was cut top and bottom by a stamp affixing device. I can't recall the name of the device and am away from my library. Snow, I think?
