EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS IS WITHOUT QUESTION THE FINEST EXAMPLE OF THE RARE 1916 ONE-CENT PERF 10 UNWATERMARKED POSTAGE DUE ISSUE WE HAVE ENCOUNTERED. THIS SUPERB STAMP HAS BEEN GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E. -- BY FAR THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED AND SHARED BY NO OHERS.

The 1c Perf 10 stamps were printed on unwatermarked paper for only a brief time. Well-centered original-gum examples are exceedingly rare. This copy, with lightly hinged original gum, outstanding centering and fresh color is a condition rarity of the highest order.

With 1992 P.F. and 2016 P.S.E. certificates (XF-Superb 95; unpriced in SMQ above the grade of 90, SMQ $6,500.00 as 90). This is the only example to achieve this superior grade.
