VERY FINE. AN IMMENSELY RARE EXAMPLE OF THE 10-SHILLING ULTRAMARINE ON BLUED PAPER. A MAJOR GREAT BRITAIN RARITY, ESPECIALLY SO IN THIS CHOICE CONDITION.
The color of this issue, unlike the 5sh, was undecided for many months. The De La Rue First Scheme was in Brown, Second Scheme in Red and Third Scheme in Brown again. It was not until the Fourth Scheme submitted on Dec. 12, 1882, that the Ultramarine color was selected.
Ex Baillie and Gross. With 1969 and 1987 R.P.S. certificates. SG £40,000. Scott $40,000.00
