EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SPECTACULAR USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1859 10-CENT TYPE V WITH A SIGNIFICANT PORTION OF THE IMPRINT CAPTURED AT RIGHT AND WITH ENORMOUS MARGINS ON ALL OTHER SIDES.
With 2009 P.S.E. certificate (XF-Superb 95 Jumbo). We submitted this stamp for grading to see how P.S.E. factored the captured imprint into the equation. William A. Litle included a note stating that "Grading this one is completely subjective." Agreed. This is the finest example with captured imprint we have ever encountered, and for a stamp like this SMQ is not an accurate guide.
