EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A PHENOMENAL USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1855 10-CENT IMPERFORATE TYPE IV FROM POSITION 64L1 -- THE ONLY POSITION RECUT AT BOTH TOP AND BOTTOM -- WHICH HAS BEEN GRADED SUPERB 98 BY P.S.E. A WONDERFUL CONDITION RARITY IN THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED.

10c 1855 Type IV stamps are defined by the recut of one or both outer lines at the top or bottom of the design. Type IV stamps come from only seven scattered positions on the left pane and one position on the right pane of Plate 1. Therefore, only 4% of the stamps from Plate 1 are Type IV. Of these eight positions, this is the only one with recut lines at both top and bottom.

With 2014 P.S.E. certificate (Superb 98; SMQ $12,250.00). This is the highest grade and only one other shares it (ex Kirke, from Position 65L1).

Position 3R1, the misplaced relief position showing breaks in lines above each "X", large to huge margins including top sheet margin, deep rich color on bright paper, neat strike of grid cancel

VERY FINE AND CHOICE. A BEAUTIFUL USED EXAMPLE OF THE IMPERFORATE TYPE IV 10-CENT 1855 ISSUE FROM THE MISPLACED RELIEF POSITION -- THE ONLY RECUT POSITION ON THE RIGHT PANE OF THE PLATE.

The first 10c plate of 200 (left and right panes of 100) was laid down using a three-subject transfer roll with relief types A, B and C. The C Relief was used only for the bottom row (all Type I design). The A Relief (Type II design) was used to enter the entire second row, and the B Relief (Type III design) was used for the third row. This A/B alternating relief pattern was followed consistently for the fourth through ninth rows. The top row was entered with the A Relief, except for three positions: Positions 1 and 2 in the left pane, and Position 3 in the right pane. These “misplaced reliefs” are B Reliefs, and Positions 1L and 2L are Type III designs, while Position 3R was recut (Type IV).

Position 3R1, one of the three misplaced relief positions on the plate, is also one of eight recut (Type IV) positions and the only recut position on the entire right pane of the plate.

Ex Newbury and Grunin. With 1977 and 1991 P.F. certificates
