10¢ Green, Type I (13), Position 91R1, bottom left corner position with interpane margin at left and sheet margin at bottom, rich color, detailed impression, tied by lightly struck "Milford Conn. Nov. 20" circular datestamp on buff cover to San Francisco
Extremely Fine Gem--an extraordinary full corner-margin stamp from the bottom left of the right pane of Plate 1, neatly tied on a transcontinental cover.
The 10¢ Type I stamps only come from the 20 bottom-row positions of Plate 1. One would expect to find more copies with the bottom sheet margin intact, but this is rarely the case. When the sheet margin is present, it usually has a corner crease or handling flaw. The example offered here, with large corner margins and in completely sound condition, is a spectacular exception to the rule.
