Sale Number 1225, Lot Number 274, Engraved Issues (Scott 8-10)10c Blue, Frameline (10), 10c Blue, Frameline (10)10c Blue, Frameline (10). Positions 53-59, horizontal strip of seven, showing full framelines at top and left, original gum, wonderful richness of color and depth of impression -- a classic early copper plate printing -- Positions 54-55 and 58 with vertical creases, Position 56 small thin spot and tiny tear

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. THIS IS THE FAMOUS LILLY STRIP OF SEVEN OF THE CONFEDERATE STATES 10-CENT FRAMELINE ISSUE -- THE LARGEST RECORDED MULTIPLE.

The 10c Frameline (Scott 10) is the rarest Confederate States General Issue design type in unused condition, particularly with original gum. Singles with original gum are very elusive, and multiples are of another order of rarity. There are perhaps four or five strips of four known, with or without gum. This strip of seven is the largest recorded unused multiple. We offered a different strip of seven in our 1980 Rarities sale, which had black marks on four stamps (ex Ferrary, pictured in Dietz). There also exists a single block of four without gum (ex Kilbourne, Siegel Sale 1190, lot 1389). The strip offered here was acquired by the Kilbournes in the April 1967 sale of the Josiah K. Lilly collection, where it realized $3,400 hammer.

Ex Lilly and Kilbourne. Scott value $47,500.00
