Sale 1000, Lot 1129, 1893 Columbian Issue (1c-50c)10c Columbian (237). Mint N.H., radiant color which is very eye-catching, perfectly centered with Jumbo margins

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. AN ABSOLUTELY STUNNING MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 10-CENT COLUMBIAN ISSUE, WHICH HAS BEEN GRADED SUPERB 98 JUMBO BY P.S.E. -- THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED TO DATE.

The 10c is extremely difficult to find with wide and centered margins. For some reason, it can be found with wide margins at sides but is almost never is seen this way at top and bottom. It is easily the most difficult non-dollar-value to find in such choice condition.

With 2010 P.S.E. certificate (Superb 98 Jumbo; unpriced in SMQ above the grade of 98, SMQ $8,750.00 as 98). This is the highest grade awarded to date and only two others share this grade.
