EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A PHENOMENAL USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1855 10-CENT IMPERFORATE TYPE IV FROM POSITION 64L1 -- THE ONLY POSITION RECUT AT BOTH TOP AND BOTTOM -- GRADED SUPERB 98 BY P.S.E. A WONDERFUL CONDITION RARITY IN THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED.

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, this is the only one with recut lines at both top and bottom.

Ex Saadi. With 1989 P.F. and 2014 P.S.E. certificates (Superb 98; SMQ $13,750.00). This is the highest grade and only one other shares it (ex Kirke, from Position 65L1).
