Sale Number 1159, Lot Number 49, 1851-56 Issue (Scott 5-17)10c Green, Ty. II (14), 10c Green, Ty. II (14)10c Green, Ty. II (14). Original gum, three large margins, full at bottom, deep rich color

VERY FINE AND CHOICE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1855 10-CENT TYPE II IMPERFORATE.

Given the wide spacing between subjects on the plate used to print the 10c 1855 Issue, one would expect to find an ample supply of examples in sound original-gum condition with four margins. However, such stamps are extremely rare.

With 2002 P.S.E. certificate. Small red backstamp
