VERY FINE. AN EXCEPTIONALLY RARE SOUND, UNUSED EXAMPLE OF THE 10-CENT IMPERFORATE TYPE IV FROM POSITION 64L1 -- THE ONLY POSITION RECUT AT BOTH TOP AND BOTTOM.

10c 1855 Type IV stamps are defined by the recut of one or both outer lines at the top or bottom of the design. Type IV stamps come from only seven scattered positions on the left pane and one position on the right pane of Plate 1. Therefore, only 4% of the stamps from Plate 1 are Type IV. Of these eight positions, 64L1 is the only one with recut lines at both top and bottom.

A survey of The Philatelic Foundation's records and our own Power Search reveals the rarity of Position 64L1 in sound, unused condition. The only comparable example in Power Search is the original gum stamp from our 1994 "Concord" Rarities of the World sale, which had an insignificant corner crease far from the design. The P.F. online database lists only one sound example (without gum) in addition the stamp offered here.

With 2016 P.F. certificate. Position 64L1 is unpriced without gum. Scott Retail as original gum
