Sale Number 1074, Lot Number 572, 10c 1857-60 Issue (Scott 31-35)10c Green, Ty. I (31), 10c Green, Ty. I (31)10c Green, Ty. I (31). Choice centering with wide and balanced margins, rich color, New Orleans town cancel

EXTREMELY FINE GEM USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 10-CENT TYPE I WITH REMARKABLE JUMBO MARGINS WHICH CLEARLY SHOW THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE TYPE.

Type I stamps are only found on the 20 stamps that comprise the bottom row of the plate. Due to narrow spacing on the plate and difficulties in aligning the perforating machine, stamps at the bottom of the plate usually have perforations cutting into the bottom portion of the design. This is a serious drawback, because Type I is defined as having the design complete at bottom. The stamp offered here, which is very well-centered and clearly shows the type characteristics, is a true condition rarity.

With 1989 P.F. and 2014 P.S.E. certificates (XF 90 Jumbo; SMQ $4,500.00 as 90, $11,000.00 as 95). This is the only example to achieve this grade and only six have graded higher (all at 95).
