1a [1851 2 RBS, Ferslew Printing] Used F-VF, with two large margins and two small margins, with remarkably neat and clear #1 3-ring numeral cancellation. The Ferslew printing is unusual with a numeral postmark as the numeral cancelers did not come into use until very late in the use of the Ferslew-printed stamps. This stamp has a complicated situation. 1) The stamp is accompanied by a 1988 Carl Aage Møller color photo certificate stating that the stamp is Facit #1I (the first / Ferslew printing, Scott #1a), but textually it says it is the second / Thiele printing. I sent the stamp and certificate back to Møller and in March 2019 and he corrected the text of the certificate (to Ferslew), signing and dating it. 2) The certificate does not mention, and even though I pointed it out to Møller he did not correct it, that the stamp does have an ironed-out vertical filing fold. 3) The certificate states that the stamp is repaired in the lower margin. In my examination, I could not find evidence of the repair. However, what I think Møller is seeing is that there is a very sharp and embossed edge to the printing area at bottom, but that is a specific feature of the Plate II, Position 46 cliche (about which Møller and I do agree) and is clearly shown in the reference literature as such. I do not see a repair; instead I see contiguous paper and burelage along the entire bottom margin and up into the stamp. However, even if I am completely wrong about that, it is not very relevant because the bottom margin could simply be clipped away to make it a perfectly okay (except for the iron-out fold) 3-margin stamp. Any reduction in value is because of the fold, not because of the situation in the bottom margin. Facit 2020 value SEK 22,000 = about $2620 for a normal mute cancel and SEK 25,000 with a #1 cancel. Whether you want to think of this as a 3-margin stamp, or a 4-margin stamp with a questionable bottom margin, this is a scarce stamp that is missing from most collections; available at an extremely reasonable price of less than 25% of the basic catalog value!
