Sale Number 1180, Lot Number 27, 1847 Issue (Scott 1-2)10c Black (2), 10c Black (2)10c Black (2). Unused (no gum), huge margins all around, intense shade and impression, small thin spot at top left and small tear at top

EXTREMELY FINE GEM APPEARANCE. A HUGE MARGINED UNUSED EXAMPLE OF THE 10-CENT 1847 ISSUE.

The 1847 Issue is much scarcer in unused condition than other issues, because the stamps were demonetized in 1851. They could be exchanged for the new issue, but once the exchange period ended, the stamps would have no postage value. Considering the purchasing power of ten cents in 1851, it is not surprising that the stamps were either used or exchanged, rather than left for future generations of collectors in a hobby that did not yet exist. The small faults on this example are not readily visible and so do not detract from its appearance, but they will make it more affordable.
