VERY FINE AND CHOICE. A FRESH AND BEAUTIFUL BLOCK OF THE 2-CENT GREEN LITHOGRAPH, WITH THREE MINT NEVER-HINGED STAMPS.
A Power Search review found many blocks of four of this issue, but nearly every one we have offered has a fault. This sound block is a notable exception.
With 1986, 1997 and 2004 P.F. certificates. Scott Retail as hinged block (Mint N.H. stamps are unpriced in Scott)
EXTREMELY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL USED EXAMPLE OF THE 10-CENT FRAMELINE ISSUE, GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E.
The defining characteristic of Scott 10 is the frameline between the stamps. The lines were engraved on the plate and served as a guide for the siderographer when aligning the transfers to make the plate. Each stamp shares framelines with the adjoining positions, so four-frameline copies are exceedingly rare.
Red backstamp. With 2019 P.S.E. certificate (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $8,250.00)
EXTREMELY FINE APPEARANCE. A SCARCE UNUSED EXAMPLE OF THE CONFEDERATE STATES 10-CENT FRAMELINE ISSUE IN THE GREENISH BLUE SHADE.
Ex Murphy, Hastings and Kilbourne. With 2018 P.F. certificate
