VERY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL AND RARE SOUND ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 10-CENT 1847 ISSUE.
The 1847 Issue is much scarcer in unused condition than other issues, because the stamps were demonetized in 1851. They could be exchanged for the new issue, but once the exchange period ended, the stamps would have no postage value. Considering the purchasing power of ten cents in 1851, it is not surprising that the stamps were either used or exchanged, rather than left for future generations of collectors. The 10c 1847 Issue is rare in sound original-gum condition -- especially with margins that do not impinge on the design on any side. This is a fresh and choice example.
