Category — 1851-56 Issue
EXTREMELY FINE. A PHENOMENAL USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1855 10-CENT TYPE I IN THE FINEST CONDITION POSSIBLE.
The Type I stamps are defined as having complete scrolls at bottom. They are only found on the bottom row of the plate (20 positions). Unfortunately, many were trimmed at bottom when they were separated, leaving a dearth of quality copies.
With 2009 P.S.E. certificate (Superb 98; SMQ $6,400.00). Only one has graded higher to date (at 98J) and only two others share this grade.
