Original gum, barely hinged (appears Mint N.H. without close examination), with top plate no. 620 selvage, deep shade and detailed impression, wide margins and mathematically perfect centering

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS IS THE ONLY EXAMPLE OF THE 10-CENT TRANS-MISSISSIPPI ISSUE TO RECEIVE THE PERFECT GRADE OF GEM 100 FROM P.S.E. A SUPERB STAMP IN EVERY RESPECT.

A review of the P.S.E. Population Report shows how rare the Trans-Mississippi Issue is in the grade of Gem 100, especially among the higher denominations. Above the 8c value, only this 10c and a single hinged $1.00 have achieved the perfect Gem 100 grade (there is also one used $1.00 graded 100J).

With 2017 P.S.E. certificate (OGph, Gem 100; unpriced in SMQ above the grade of 98). This is the highest grade awarded and is shared by no others in any condition (used, hinged or Mint N.H.)
