EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A BEAUTIFUL SHEET-MARGIN EXAMPLE OF THE 1855 10-CENT TYPE I.

The 10c Type I stamps are defined as having complete scrolls at bottom. They are only found on the bottom row of the plate (20 positions). For some reason, they were usually trimmed at bottom when they were separated, leaving a dearth of quality copies. This example, with its large bottom margin, is an extreme exception to the rule.

With 2013 P.S.E. certificate (XF 90 Jumbo; SMQ $1,850.00). We have no idea why this stamp did not receive the well-deserved grade of 95 (or 95J).
