Sale Number 1242, Lot Number 368, Ten-Cent: Type III, Off-Cover (Scott 15)10c Green, Type III (15), 10c Green, Type III (15)10c Green, Type III (15).

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. THIS IS THE LARGEST RECORDED STRIP OF THE 10-CENT 1855 TYPE III. AN IMPRESSSIVE MULTIPLE.

Due to the way the 10c Plate 1 was laid out--with mostly alternating rows of reliefs and types--the only way to obtain large multiples of Type III is in a horizontal strip. The Type III comes from the B Relief, which was used to enter the 3rd, 5th, 7th and 9th rows, plus the two misplaced relief positions in the top row (Positions 1-2L1). The iconic block of 21 offered in lot 346 illustrates this nicely. It contains a total of eleven Type III stamps, but not more than three are contiguous at any point. A Type III multiple must come from a horizontal strip. This strip of eight is therefore the largest recorded multiple containing only Type III stamps.
