VERY FINE. A GORGEOUS EXAMPLE OF THE 10-CENT LINCOLN SAFETY PAPER ESSAY WITH “10” REPEATED IN THE BACKGROUND. WE HAVE IDENTIFIED TWO TYPES OF THIS UNDERPRINT, WHICH WARRANTS A NEW LISTING IN THE SCOTT CATALOGUE.

It has been assumed that each combination of safety paper and denomination/color is unique. Therefore, we were surprised to find a second example of this denomination and color with the same “10” underprinting offered in Siegel Sale 1048 (lot 170). However, after comparing the two, we identified a distinct difference in the underprint pattern. In the example offered here and two others we have sold in different colors, the arches above the “10” do not touch the row below them. In four other examples we have sold in the past, including the other 5c in this color, the bottoms of the arches touch the row below them. This difference is significant enough that the Scott Catalogue should create separate listings for the two Type 24 underprints.

Ex Finkelburg and Ainsworth
