Sale Number 1109, Lot Number 315, 10c 1847 Issue, Off-Cover (Scott 2)10c Black (2), 10c Black (2)10c Black (2). Unused (no gum), full to ample margins, intense shade and proof-like impression, small corner crease at bottom left, small tear at bottom -- neither are obvious without magnification

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. AN ATTRACTIVE UNUSED EXAMPLE OF THE 10-CENT 1847 ISSUE.

The 1847 Issue is much scarcer in unused condition than other issues, because the stamps were demonetized in 1851. They could be exchanged for the new issue, but once the exchange period ended, the stamps would have no postage value. Considering the purchasing power of ten cents in 1851, it is not surprising that the stamps were either used or exchanged, rather than left for future generations of collectors.

With 2009 P.F. certificate
