Sale Number 1225, Lot Number 259, Engraved Issues (Scott 8-10)10c Blue, "TEN" (9), 10c Blue, "TEN" (9)10c Blue, "TEN" (9). Horizontal block of ten, major double transfer in top left position (evident in denomination label), original gum, two small h.r., one or two stamps at bottom possibly Mint N.H., huge margins to just barely in at upper left, brilliant color and fresh paper

VERY FINE-EXTREMELY FINE. A PHENOMENAL LARGE MULTIPLE OF THE CONFEDERATE STATES 1863 "TEN" ISSUE. THIS IS THE FINEST BLOCK IN EXISTENCE.

The 1863 "TEN" design with the denomination spelled out was the first Archer & Daly 10c issue. Both the "Ten" and Frameline (Scott 10) were printed from copper plates. In manufacturing the "TEN" plate, Archer & Daly's siderographer attempted to enter the 200 subjects from a single-relief transfer roll, but utterly failed to achieve uniform spacing and alignment, probably because there were no transfer guide dots. This plate is truly fascinating from a philatelist's perspective, with grossly misaligned subjects, short transfers, double transfers and plate flaws that rival the pre-war 1c 1851-57 plates. To remedy the alignment problem, the subsequent copper plate was etched with lines to facilitate transfer alignment. The so-called Frameline issue was followed by production from the steel plates used to print 10c stamps from Dies A and B (Scott 11 and 12), which do not have framelines and are much more uniformly aligned.

Large blocks of the "TEN" issue are rare, and almost all of the known blocks have faults. This sound block of ten with original gum, large margins, brilliant color and fresh paper, is without question the finest extant. We are confident in our opinion after compiling a census of multiples for the ultimate purpose of plating the "Ten" issue, which is a work in progress.

Ex Dr. Brandon. Scott value $12,500.00 as two blocks of four and a pair does not accurately speak to the high quality of this multiple

Sale Number 1225, Lot Number 260, Engraved Issues (Scott 8-10)10c Blue, "TEN" (9), 10c Blue, "TEN" (9)10c Blue, "TEN" (9). Vertical block of 22 from the left pane with huge left sheet margin, original gum, creases (a bit heavy between left two vertical rows), scattered toned spots, bottom stamp at right clipped corner, couple pinholes, manuscript "Confederate Stamps" in margin probably written during or after the war when the stamps were found

FINE-VERY FINE APPEARANCE. ONE OF THE LARGEST KNOWN MULTIPLES OF THE CONFEDERATE STATES "TEN" ISSUE. A MARVELOUS ARTIFACT OF THE EARLY 10-CENT ENGRAVED PRINTING FROM THE FIRST DIE AND COPPER PLATE.

This is the largest multiple we have offered in one of our auctions since the 1990s and in all our Rarities sales since 1964. An unused block of 30 with the plate bruise showing is illustrated in the original Dietz catalogue, but we cannot trace its history since 1929, and it is possible that it was cut into smaller blocks.

This is the largest multiple we have offered in one of our auctions since the 1990's and in all our Rarities sales since 1964. The C.S.A. Catalog states that an unused block of 30 is recorded, which is presumably the block illustrated in the 1929 Dietz catalogue, the whereabouts of which is not known to us (some reports say it was cut apart).

EXTREMELY FINE BLOCK OF THE CONFEDERATE STATES "TEN" ISSUE -- ONE OF THE FINEST MULTIPLES IN EXISTENCE.

This block shows the misalignment of subjects (the lefthand vertical entries are significantly lower than the others) and the short transferring (second stamp from left in bottom row) that make the "TEN" plate such a fascinating subject for study.

VERY FINE-EXTREMELY FINE. A PHENOMENAL BLOCK OF TEN OF THE CONFEDERATE STATES "TEN" ISSUE. THIS IS EASILY ONE OF THE FINEST MULTIPLES IN EXISTENCE.

This is the largest multiple we have offered in one of our auctions since the 1990's. We offered a block of 20 in 1970, but that may have been broken. When blocks do come up for auction they tend to be faulty. The multiple offered here is not only a rare "TEN" multiple, it is exponentially rarer when condition is a factor.

Scott Retail as two blocks of four and a pair.
