Sale Number 1166, Lot Number 527, Essays, Proofs and Specimens, cont.10c Carmine Lake, Small Die Trial Color Proof on India (400TC2), 10c Carmine Lake, Small Die Trial Color Proof on India (400TC2)10c Carmine Lake, Small Die Trial Color Proof on India (400TC2). 32 x 25mm, intense color, shallow thin spot

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE TRIAL COLOR PROOF FOR THE 10-CENT PANAMA-PACIFIC ISSUE, WHICH IS THE ONLY DENOMINATION KNOWN AS A TRIAL COLOR PROOF.

The Scott Catalogue lists the 10c in Brown Red as a large die trial color proof on India, and this Carmine Lake as a small die trial color proof on India. They are exceedingly rare -- this is the first we have offered since keeping computerized records. We suspect the Scott value of $1,100.00 is based on decades-old pricing and will be a fraction of its realization.
