Sale Number 1125, Lot Number 971, Confederate States: General Issues off Cover10c Milky Blue, Frameline (10a), 10c Milky Blue, Frameline (10a)10c Milky Blue, Frameline (10a). Large even margins with four framelines, each essentially complete apart from small sections at top right and lower right, double frameline variety at upper left, neat double-circle datestamp cancel

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A RARE LARGE-MARGINED 10-CENT FRAMELINE ISSUE WHICH HAS BEEN GRADED XF 90 BY P.S.E.

As explained in the 2012 C.S.A. Catalogue, the lines on the Frameline issue were engraved on the copper printing plate as a means of aligning the die images as they were entered onto the plate. Because the framelines were shared by adjacent stamps, the norm is to find stamps with only a portion of some of the framelines. Stamps with parts of all four framelines are scarce, while a stamp with four essentially complete framelines is very rare.

With 2014 P.F. and 2015 P.S.E. certificates (XF 90; SMQ $4,500.00). This is the highest grade awarded

Sale Number 1104, Lot Number 2305, General Issues off Cover10c Milky Blue, Frameline (10a), 10c Milky Blue, Frameline (10a)10c Milky Blue, Frameline (10a). Position 89, small part original gum, frameline complete on all four sides, radiant color and crisp impression

EXTREMELY FINE. THIS IS WIDELY REGARDED AS THE FINEST UNUSED EXAMPLE OF THE CONFEDERATE STATES 10-CENT FRAMELINE ISSUE. ONLY TWO UNUSED EXAMPLES ARE RECORDED SHOWING ALL FOUR FRAMELINES COMPLETE, AND THE OTHER HAS A SIGNIFICANT FAULT. A PHENOMENAL RARITY AND ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT CONFEDERATE STATES CONDITION RARITIES IN EXISTENCE.

The most important characteristic of Scott 10 is the frameline around each stamp. The lines were engraved on the plate and served as a guide for the siderographer when aligning the die images to make the plate. Each stamp shares framelines with the adjoining positions, so the existence of four-frameline copies is exceedingly rare. Only two are recorded in unused condition. The other has a significant thin spot.

This was originally the lefthand stamp in a pair discovered by Earl Weatherly. Weatherly sold the pair to Earl Antrim, who put his usual green rubber handstamp on back, which unfortunately bled through to the front. The bleeding was far worse on the righthand stamp. The pair was separated by noted dealer Jack Molesworth and it received a 1965 P.F. certificate stating "Genuine, with some original gum and a stain". The "stain" was caused by the handstamp, which has since been professionally removed. The stamp has a 2010 P.F. certificate as "Genuine, unused, with small part o.g."

Ex Weatherly, Antrim and Birkinbine. With 1965 C.S.A., 1966 and 2010 P.F. certificates. Accompanied by notes from Robert Wiseman and John Birkinbine describing the history of this stamp. Scott Catalogue notes "Unused stamps showing four complete framelines are exceedingly rare (only two recorded), and the sound example is valued at $35,000.00"

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A PHENOMENAL USED EXAMPLE OF THE CONFEDERATE STATES 10-CENT FRAMELINE ISSUE.

The most important characteristic of Scott 10 is the frameline around each stamp. The lines were engraved on the plate and served as a guide for the siderographer when aligning the die images to make the plate. Each stamp shares framelines with the adjoining positions, so the existence of such complete framelines is rare.

With 2014 P.F. certificate (Superb 98). The SMQ grade for a 98 is $26,600.00.
