Here is a little bit of fun. The Penny Blacks, as I'm sure that most of you know, were printed in sheets of 240 stamps; 12 across and 20 down. Each stamp was uniquely labelled with it's position on the sheet by placing the column (A to L) and the row (A to T) in the left and Right bottom corners respectively. My Penny Black is labelled "J" "C" as you can see below.

Here is my challenge. Let's see if we can compile a full sheet of Penny Blacks between us. Just post on this thread which one/s you have. I'll create a special page with a table showing the sheet labelled "AA", "AB", "AC" etc and when you tell me which ones you have I'll mark them off in the table by changing their color.

What do you think?

Tim.

re: Do we have a sheet of Penny Blacks between us?

Tim,

Interesting idea! My "Penny Black" is 'GE'

Years ago I started to plate the Inverted Jenny by watching major online auctions and capturing the images for C3a and placing the images in the proper sequence in spreadsheet. The I discovered that someone had already done it and you could get a copy for a modest sum! Destroyed the incentive. But trying for a plating of the Penny Black from SOR members sounds intriguing.

Good luck,

George

PS I'll scan my Penny Black and post if you want to go that way.

re: Do we have a sheet of Penny Blacks between us?

I've read about and looked at Penny Blacks and Two Penny Blues....I want them!!!! Is there any way to get them for less than $250-$300? I've tried the sources that I know and they are all out of my price range. Should I just keep saving up for them?

Lisa,

Not long ago I read in a Stanley Gibbons newsletter that Chinese collectors were going nuts over Penny Blacks, and paying big bucks for them. There are a few "Buy it now" offers on eBay for a hundred dollars or thereabouts, but most are a lot more. Good luck!

@Lisa

You can buy a decent looking, fault free Penny Black in the $100-$150 range. It will typically be 3 clear margins and close on the 4th side. A pretty copy with 4 full margins will start around $200. A 3 margin copy, slightly cut into on the 4th side will typically be available for about $75.

re: Do we have a sheet of Penny Blacks between us?

@Lisa, there are several available at BidStart. They start at $63.00 and go up.

Searching over there can be a nightmare at times. Here is the search that I used:

http://www.bidstart.com/search_results.php?keywords=great+britain+1&category=1873&advsrc=restricted&viewSize=75

After clicking on the link, click on RESTRICTED when you get there to narrow down the search some more.

Avoid paying alot for this stamp. It is actually fairly common and easy to find.

re: Do we have a sheet of Penny Blacks between us?

OK, here is where we are up to. I have created a page that I call The Penny Page which you can access by clicking here. I have a link to The Penny Page on the home page and under Home in the menu above. Each of the Penny Blacks that you have told me about show in this page with a yellow background. Mouse over the yellow area and you will see the username of the person who owns that stamp.

If you don't see the yellow area when you go to The Penny Page, hold down your SHIFT Key and click on the refresh button on your browser. You might have to do this a couple of times. Could someone using a IE on a Windows computer please check that the mouse over of the owners name is working for me.

Keep them coming everyone. I know there are more people in Stamporama who have a Penny Black or two.

Regards ... Tim.

@Perry, thanks for including your DH.

@John, thanks for showing us your framed Penny Black. I assume that "PAPA BRAVO" indicates that your Penny Black is a PB and have updated the Stamporama Penny Page as such. Please correct me if I have misunderstood. We Australian/Americans are a bit thick sometimes.

Keep them coming everyone. Bob P (Parkinlot) I know you have a beautiful example to add to the collection.

I have seen several Penny Blacks on EBay that have red cancels like the ones Roy has shown. They look a lot like red just smeared on the stamp. Can anyone educate me about what the red is, where it came from and when?
Thank you in advance!!

re: Do we have a sheet of Penny Blacks between us?

Lisa,

When the Penny Black was first issued the British PO used black ink to cancel the stamps. But the black ink on black stamps made it hard to see the cancel. They then switched to the red ink so it could be seen better. Then they decided to ditch the black stamp altogether and switched to red stamps using the same plates as the Penny Black.

It was either at Interphil'76 or CAPEX '78 that the British Post Office used large paper bags that had an entire sheet of the GB #1 printed on both sides for sales. Was a neat bag. I kept it for a number of years. Would be nice if I still had it though.

I suspect that some members checked their letters against what is on the chart and if theirs were already reported decided not to mention the duplication.
I know i checked and was glad mine were different. I am not sure I would have mentioned them were they already reorted.

Mark, while I am an avid proponent of tossing damaged stamps that are worthless (cat less than $1), I would not toss a GB #1, no matter what its condition. There are plenty of people who want/need the stamp in their collection, and will trade or buy it from you.

Tim, here's the difference between Scott and SG on the 1840 issues:

Scott #1 = SG #1 through 3
Scott #2 = SG #4 through 6

SG #2 is for the black color variety (Scott #1a). SG #1 s for intense black (Scott #1), and #3 for gray-black (worn plate)(Scott #1b)

Hi Michael,
Thank you very much for the info. My Scott 2007 cat doesn't differentiate the 1a and 1b from the 1. Could you possibly give me the cat value for the 1a?

Regards ... TIm.

Tim, Scott lists the 1a and 1b in the Classic Specialized Catalog. My catalog is from 2009. The 1a is $9,250 unused and $400 used. Maybe someone with a newer Classic Catalog can update the values.

Hey! Gang! I haven't been feeling well for a couple of months, now but I have to get off my assets and do something. 1st thing I'm gonna do is tell you about my penny black. It may not be my most valuable but it is the most memorable. It was the 1st prize at the
2000 yearly stamp show in Orlando. Couldn't believe it when they called my name. I never win anything. Anyway my penny black is RG. can't figure out how to put that on the board there.

Stamporama members:

I would like to restate my appreciation, and vigorously so, to Mr. Tim Auld
for inaugurating Stamporama's "penny black" page. As a lucky possessor
of this stamp, I now enjoy the good fortune of viewing the examples of
other members and sharing in their pleasure.

Although a number of noteworthy postage stamps exist,
the "penny black" stands supreme, and is known and recognized beyond
the world of philately. An historic treasure, long may she reign.

Well done, Tim Auld.

John Derry

I have to apologize to you, I just noticed that I had missed adding your PB's to the Penny Black Page. Your OK and your DC are now added.

Mesapp1,
We already had an NJ, but I have add your username to the mouse over. Again, I apologize for not doing this earlier.

So to the rest of our new friends from BS or VSC or anywhere else, if you have a Penny Black, let us know about it and I will add it to the Penny Black Page.

Regards to all ... Tim.

re: Do we have a sheet of Penny Blacks between us?

I was just looking at the Penny Black Page and started thinking if it would be possible to predict which plate positions would most likely be found used and which would most likely be found MNH.

I am going off the assumption (I know about assuming) that most MNH Penny Blacks are "accidental" leftovers that were put away never used by the public to mail an item.

If I were a person living in Victorian England in the 1840s and purchased a sheet of Penny Blacks here is how I would probably use them. Being right handed, I would use my scissors and start cutting at the top right. Position AL would be used first. The next stamp I would use would be AK, etc. Essentialy going right to left, top to bottom. Once I got down to the last 3 stamps, it would be a toss up between TA, TB or TC. So, according to my scenario AL would be the most commonly used/less likely MNH Penny Black and TA/TB/TC would most likey be MNH and least likely used.

I may start taking a survey of all MNH Penny Blacks I see in auction catalogs and see if there is some sort of pattern.

What do you all think?

re: Do we have a sheet of Penny Blacks between us?

Bob:

This is a remarkable example of off-the-wall thinking that I would have sworn was way beyond you. It is the type of fantasy escape-ism in which I wish I would indulge had I the wits.

I am left-handed - the artistic, creative guy that everybody wants to hug. I attended a Catholic elementary school until the fourth grade and was encouraged to use my right hand. (The nuns were strong practitioners of their religion and abhorred force, violence or physical punishment.) My Orthodox-Catholic maternal grandmother believed that the Devil sat on the left side of God, and that I was doomed to a fate of hellfire and brimstone. So far, she's nailed it.

Back on topic: believe that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and his deerstalker-capped creation preempted your flight of imagination with: "Sherlock Holmes and the Curious Case of the Dog which wouldn't bark at the Letter-Carrier delivering the Letter with the cancelled Penny Black, position Tango Charlie."

Chase your dream, Bob, I'm with you all the way.

Maybe it was posted earlier and I missed it, but here it is. I see there is an ED listed, but no SJ yet; I'll post the SJ image when I can get to my scanner again.

Dryer, I'm trying to figure out if this is sarcasm, or if there is just a cultural difference. My dad was born and raised in the Polish community of Hamtramck (Detroit), and he would tell us stories of how those nuns at school could be some pretty mean so-and-so's, with a ruler always handy to "get their point across" if you know what I mean.

re: Do we have a sheet of Penny Blacks between us?

Up to the eighth grade ( 1953 ) at three different parochial schools on Long Island a ruler across the open hand was a frequent punishment and being paddled at the principle's office occasionally occurred for serious offenses.
In High School,(1954-'57), I do not recall anyone receiving corporal punishment, but I'll admit that they were Dominicans and I do not recall the order of the elementary school nuns.

Our youngest daughter, the baby girl, a natural blond who will turn 50 next month, was told that left-handed people were more intelligent than right handers, so she has been trying for at least 45 years to switch from being a righty. (I have no idea who would have told that sweet young girl something like that, except maybe a devious left-handed father). We still laugh when we see her attempting to be a lefty.

re: Do we have a sheet of Penny Blacks between us?

update on my penny black. the fire burnt my Gb album and on the left side.
1st one to go was ,of course #1, the penny black, stamp to ashes and ashes to dust. Anyway, it's gone. the RG position. I think, I sent Tim a message about this and unless someone else has an RG , I guess we don't have one. However, I bought a box of album pages and glassines at Michael Roger's auction in April and in the bottom of the box was a damaged penny black on a stock card. The position is KL. sorry, I can't seem to get a good pic of it especially with new printer, that picasa thing is too much for me.

I got my PB from Stanley Gibbons today. The cancel is over the left letter, but it looks like IG to me, which will add a new one to our game board.

Congratulations Michael; nice four margins too. I noticed you posted the entire presentation folder on the other site, with a COA by one of their moderators from SG. Not sure about that pedigree but nonetheless a PB is a PB and nice to have.

Cheers,
Peter

Thanks. I was surprised seeing those margins. It is a very nice presentation of the stamp, and the frame is very heavy duty and large too. They did a nice job putting it together.

Looks like we're about half-way to getting a complete sheet of the Penny Black amongst the SOR members.

I thought I'd bump this up for the newer members to see if they had any Penny Blacks that they could add to the sheet!

I have updated the Penny Page with your stamps. Where we have more than one member owning an example of the same stamp (ie. BF) I have added the second member's username so that both are recognized as you mouse over the sheet position.

Keep them coming. Our Penny Page is filling up.

It might be possible to read the lower left corner by enhancing the scan in a photo program - I have photoshop and a few other photo editors, can't hurt to try - solve that curious feeling you have not knowing what that final letter is that solves the puzzle Big Grin

That would be nice if I knew what the final letter was, but I do not have photoshop.

I scanned the stamp at the highest resolution on my scanner and I could not read the letter under the cancel.

re: Do we have a sheet of Penny Blacks between us?

I too thought it was an S, however, I actually think it is the letter D. When I looked at more closely, the vertical line of the letter on the right side is solid. Also if you look at the bottom left side of the letter, the vertical line is also solid. The curves we see at the end of the bottom left which would make us first think of an S is the same as those found in those which are actually D's (looking back to the images provided below by other members with a clear D). There is no curve at the upper right side, as would be expected from the letter S, but rather it appears to be part of the cancellation as the black mark extends to the one part of the box and is actually higher than the letter itself. The bottom right corner curves like the D, rather than the S.

Image Not Found Image Not Found Image Not Found Image Not Found

Obviously my red outline is not completely accurate but it gives a view of how I came to the conclusion that it was a "D".

I used Photoshop, Paint.NET and PhotoPlus going through various methods of amplification, embossing, levels, exposures, and finally settling with relief which pulls the background forward (hard to do with a black on black image).

I'm sorry everyone, I have got behind in my Penny Black posting. I would very much like to thank the following members for their Penny Black Contributions.

Stampbooster - LA
Linus - CB
mbo1142 - DA

If you go and run your mouse over your position on the Penny Black Page, your username will popup.

For our recent members who haven't caught up with the Penny Black Page, we are building a whole sheet of Penny Blacks with stamps that we own between us. You have to actually own the stamp to be able to post it on the page. It is fine to submit duplicates, your username will appear along side the member who's PB was posted first.

So keep them coming in everyone.

Regards ... Tim.

Thank you 1pieceatatime, donhearl and Charlie2009, I've added your Penny Blacks to the page.

For people who have joined us recently, we are collectively building a full sheet of Penny Black stamps. Search through your collection and post your Penny Blacks here on this thread and I'll post them on the Penny Page.

Regards ... Tim

This link will take you to The Stamp Forum. When you scroll down a little more than halfway on the first page, you'll find great examples of the different Maltese Crosses.

We nearly have the whole "I" row complete. Does anyone have an "IB" or an "IC" hidden away somewhere?
