EXTREMELY FINE. ONE OF THE FINEST KNOWN ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLES OF THE 1857 PERFORATED 10-CENT TYPE III. A SPECTACULAR STAMP IN TERMS OF CENTERING, COLOR, IMPRESSION AND GUM.

The first perforated 10c stamps produced by Toppan Carpenter from sheets printed from Plate 1 are notorious among collectors for their poor centering. They are also very scarce in original-gum condition because, unlike 10c Plate 2 stamps (Scott 35), there were no supplies on hand in 1861 when the issue was demonetized due to the outbreak of the Civil War.

Ex "Scarsdale". With 1992 and 2002 P.F. certificates.

FINE APPEARANCE. THE 1857 10-CENT TYPE IV PERFORATED IS ONE OF THE RAREST CLASSIC UNITED STATES ISSUES TO FIND 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 perforated examples are even scarcer than imperforate.

With 1966 P.F. certificate

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1860 24-CENT GRAY LILAC. ONE OF ONLY TWO EXAMPLES GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E., THE HIGHEST GRADED AWARDED.

Collectors looking for Gem-quality stamps (unused and used) from the 1857 perforated issue know that one of the most difficult denominations to obtain is the 24c value. The margins are often narrow, with the design almost always touched (if not in) at top or bottom. This is one of the finest original-gum examples we have ever offered.

With 2003 P.F. and 2008 P.S.E. certificates (OGph, XF-Superb 95; SMQ $7,000.00). This is the highest grade awarded and only one other shares this grade.
