EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 10-CENT TYPE III WITH AN UNUSUAL COLORFUL CANCEL.

With 2001 P.F. and 2006 P.S.E. certificates (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $1,950.00). Eleven examples have equaled this grade while only three have graded higher in the P.S.E. Population Report. We wonder if any others in that group could match this stamp for pure eye appeal
