VERY FINE. AN EXTREMELY RARE MULTIPLE OF THE 10-CENT 1857 ISSUE, CONTAINING TYPE IV AND USED ON A QUADRUPLE-RATE COVER TO MEXICO FROM THE FAMOUS HARGOUS CORRESPONDENCE.
Position 3R1 is the misplaced B Relief instead of A Relief. It is the only recut position on the right pane of Plate 1 and is very desirable as part of a large strip with other types, particularly on a foreign destination cover.
Ex Caspary, Rust, Klein and Dr. Martin. With 1989 and 2017 P.F. certificates.
