EXTREMELY FINE GEM 10-CENT 1847 STAMP ON A BEAUTIFUL COVER FROM THE TURNER CORRESPONDENCE.
The Turner correspondence is noteworthy for the artful arrangement of 5c and 10c 1847's on envelopes.
VERY FINE APPEARANCE. THE EARLIEST RECORDED BISECT USAGE OF THE 10-CENT 1847 ISSUE. A GREAT RARITY.
The next earliest recorded bisect use of the 10c is on May 13, 1848, and was offered in our April 22, 1980, sale. The bisect on that cover was accepted as prepayment, but the cover was short-paid due to distance greater than 300 miles.
With 1997 P.F. certificate
