Sale Number 1185, Lot Number 19, 1851-60 Issues10c Black, Ty. I, Large Die Trial Color Proof on India (13TC1), 10c Black, Ty. I, Large Die Trial Color Proof on India (13TC1)10c Black, Ty. I, Large Die Trial Color Proof on India (13TC1). On 42 x 48mm card, bright shade, showing layout lines from the die

EXTREMELY FINE AND FLAWLESS EXAMPLE OF THIS RARE TRIAL COLOR PROOF FOR THE 10-CENT 1855 ISSUE.

Neinken notes in his book on the 10c stamp that it is likely that design and production of the 10c 1855 was rushed. The new 10c rate went into effect on April 1, 1855, and the new stamps were not placed into use until May. The die proof shows slips of the engraver's tool, and the overall layout is slightly skewed.

The only die proof trial color is Black, and our sale records contain four different full-size Black die proofs: 1) 46 x 58mm, ex Finkelburg (Sale 816, lot 1093); 2) 62 x 77mm, ex Finkelburg (Sale 816, lot 1092); 3) 42 x 49mm, Sale 909, lot 1052; and 42 x 48mm, the proof offered here. We also record one cut-to-shape Black die proof.
