EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A STUNNING ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 10-CENT 1869 PICTORIAL RE-ISSUE, GRADED SUPERB 98 BY P.S.E. -- THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED.

The 10c and 30c 1869 Pictorial Issues and their Re-Issues are two of the most difficult designs to obtain in higher grades. Part of the reason for this has to do with their asymmetrical designs, which do not lend themselves easily to precise mathematical centering, which is the basis for numerical grading.

With 2003 P.F. and 2012 P.S.E. certificates (OGph, Superb 98; SMQ $11,250.00). This is the highest grade awarded and it is shared by only two others
