EXTREMELY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL USED EXAMPLE OF THE 10-CENT FRAMELINE ISSUE.
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.
Soaked off a perfectly good attractive blue cover after our Kilbourne auction (Sale 1190, lot 1396). With 2021 P.S.E. certificate (XF 90; SMQ $4,500.00)
