Sale 1245, Lot 2262, Confederate States10c Blue, Frameline (10). Large margins showing full framelines at bottom and left, virtually full at top and approximately half at right, bright shade, blue Raleigh N.C. double-circle datestamp

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)
