VERY FINE AND EXTREMELY RARE BLOCK OF THE "TEN" STAMP.

The Scott Catalogue value for four "TEN" singles is $3,400.00, and the value quoted for a block is $5,000.00. Blocks in any condition are rare, but this choice block is a great rarity. If the Scott value accurately reflects the market, there is a gross underappreciation of Confederate General Issue multiples of this caliber.
