VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A SCARCE UNUSED EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 10-CENT TYPE IV. AN EXTREMELY DIFFICULT ISSUE TO OBTAIN IN UNUSED CONDITION.

The 1857 10c Type IV stamps come from eight positions scattered throughout Plate 1 that have the top, bottom or both lines recut. Only 4% of all 10c Plate 1 stamps produced were Type IV's, and an even smaller percentage were issued with perforations. We have offered only four with original gum since 1993.

With 2011 P.F. certificate not noting the position.

FINE-VERY FINE. AN EXTREMELY RARE UNUSED MULTIPLE OF THE 10-CENT 1857 ISSUE CONTAINING ONE TYPE IV AND TWO TYPE II STAMPS. THE TYPE IV IS EXTREMELY RARE IN ANY FORM OF MULTIPLE IN UNUSED CONDITION. A PHENOMENAL RARITY.

The 1857 10c Type IV stamps come from eight positions scattered throughout Plate 1 that have the top, bottom or both lines recut. Only 4% of all 10c Plate 1 stamps produced were Type IV's, and an even smaller percentage were issued with perforations.

We record only four other perforated multiples containing Type IV stamps, as follows: 1) block of six with two stamps Type IV, original gum; 2) block of four with two right stamps Type IV, original gum, originally forming a block of ten with the previous multiple and now part of the same collection and presumably rejoined; 3) block of four, left stamps Type IV, original gum; 4) pair with right stamp Type IV, disturbed original gum, perfs trimmed at bottom and defective; and 5) the strip offered here.

With 2011 P.F. certificate. Scott Retail as no gum singles.
