Sale Number 984, Lot Number 263, 1861-66 Issue (Scott 56-62B)10c Dark Green, First Design (62B), 10c Dark Green, First Design (62B)10c Dark Green, First Design (62B). Wonderful intense "August" color on bright white paper, light strike of red New York "Paid"" credit datestamp

EXTREMELY FINE. A SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THE FIRST DESIGN 10-CENT 1861 ISSUE. AN EXTREMELY DIFFICULT STAMP TO FIND IN SUCH PRISTINE CONDITION. ESPECIALLY DESIRABLE WITH THE RED CANCEL.

The 10c 1861 "First Design" (or Type I from Plate 4) is extremely difficult to find in well-centered and sound condition. This is partly due to the narrow spacing on Plate 4, which was used for the earliest printing.

With 1988 P.F. certificate

Unusually wide margins and exceptionally well-centered, dark "August" color with red "paint" cork cancel, the canceling ink is so dense that it makes the stamp look like it has filled thins when placed in a watermark tray, there are a few minor faults and a partly eradicated "58" catalog number on back, Extremely Fine appearance and a desirable stamp despite the flaws
