EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 10-CENT TYPE II 1855 ISSUE. A BEAUTIFUL STAMP IN TERMS OF WIDTH OF MARGINS, COLOR AND GUM -- GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY THE PHILATELIC FOUNDATION.

The prepaid transcontinental rate was raised from 6c to 10c in April 1855, which prompted the Post Office Department to add a 10c value to the current series. Toppan, Carpenter, Casilear & Company produced one plate of 200 subjects for the imperforate issue, which was also used when perforations were introduced in 1857. Although the wider spacing on the 10c plate provided more room for separation, this stamp has unusually huge margins all around.

With 1987 and 2008 P.F. certificates (XF-Superb 95).

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A STUNNING USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1855 10-CENT TYPE II, GRADED GEM 100 JUMBO BY THE PHILATELIC FOUNDATION. THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE POSSIBLE, AND IT IS THE ONLY EXAMPLE TO ACHIEVE IT. A PHENOMENAL STAMP IN EVERY RESPECT.

Many collectors have a tendency to discount how difficult it is to find imperforate classics in such superb condition. The assumption is that there are multiples which can be cut to "make" perfect singles. However, blocks of the 10c are rare, and tend to have margins close or into the design. The stamp offered here is truly remarkable, with four enormous margins framing the design.

With 2009 and 2014 P.F. certificates (Gem 100 Jumbo). This is the only example certified by the P.F. to achieve this grade -- P.S.E. has certified none in this grade.

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS SPECTACULAR USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1855 10-CENT TYPE III HAS ACHIEVED THE PERFECT GRADE OF GEM 100. A TRULY SUPERB STAMP IN ALL RESPECTS.

The 10c Type III is defined by its incomplete bottom plumes and breaks in the circles at top. While the subjects on the 10c Plate 1 were spaced further apart than on other plates from the 1851-57 Issues, finding a true Gem 100 grade is still exceedingly difficult, due to the lack of suitable multiples to harvest.

Ex Kirke. With 2010 P.F. and 2008 P.S.E. certificates (Gem 100; SMQ $2,700.00). Only three other used Type III stamps share this grade and none has graded higher
