Three things to keep in mind when looking at the above results (unsolds are not included):

  1. It is important to look at the individual data points listed below. Price swings up may be due to varieties such as broken hat or other positives such as cancels. Price swings down may be due to factors such as faults on items that would have graded higher if they were sound, and may not be considered as desirable as a sound copy in this grade.
  2. When looking at multiple grades on the graph, grades with the same population numbers may show overlapping.
  3. At the time of an auction, the SMQ value has already been published and is available to bidders. Increases or decreases in SMQ value prior to the auction may affect the price realized.

Sale Number 1034, Lot Number 73, 1861-66 Issue (Scott 62B-78)10c Dark Green, First Design (62B), 10c Dark Green, First Design (62B)10c Dark Green, First Design (62B). Wide balanced margins all around, virtually perfect centering, dark rich color and proof-like early impression on bright paper, cancelled by rim of vivid red New York foreign-mail circular datestamp clear of portrait

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS STAMP IS, IN OUR OPINION, THE FINEST USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1861 10-CENT FIRST DESIGN EXTANT.

The 10c 1861 First Design (or Type I) was printed from Plate 4, which left very little space between the stamps for the 12-gauge perforation holes. Examples of Scott 62B (or 58) are rarely seen with margins framing the design on all sides. The stamp offered here is the rare exception, and it is even more remarkable as a used copy, free of faults, clearly cancelled in red (and face-free). As a measure of the 10c First Design's rarity in used high grades, the latest P.S.E. Population Report lists three used examples graded XF 90, this and one other graded XF-Superb 95, and none higher than 95.

With 1987 P.F. and 2008 P.S.E. certificates (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $13,000.00). This is the highest grade awarded and only one other shares it -- the stamp cancelled with black "Paid" that was offered in our recent Natalee Grace sale.

Incredibly deep rich color and sharp proof-like impression on bright paper, neat strike of "Paid" cancel, beautifully centered with wide balanced margins all around

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THE 10-CENT GREEN FIRST DESIGN IS ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT ISSUES TO OBTAIN IN SOUND AND CENTERED CONDITION. THIS MARVELOUS STAMP HAS BEEN GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E., WHICH IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED TO DATE.

The 10c 1861 First Design (or Type I) was printed from Plate 4, which left very little space between the stamps for the 12-gauge perforation holes. Examples of Scott 62B (or 58) are rarely seen with margins framing the design on all sides. The stamp offered here is the rare exception, and it is even more remarkable as a used copy, free of faults, and with a clearly-struck "Paid" cancel.

With 2000 P.F. and 2009 P.S.E. certificates (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $13,000.00). This is the highest grade awarded to date and only one other shares this grade.

EXTREMELY FINE. A HANDSOME USED EXAMPLE OF THE 10-CENT 1861 FIRST DESIGN. AN EXTREMELY DIFFICULT STAMP TO FIND IN THIS PRISTINE CONDITION.

The 10c is the only denomination of the 1861-66 Issue that was actually issued in two types. Type I, Scott 62B, was printed from Plate 4. Type II stamps -- Scott 68 and its grilled counterparts -- were printed from Plates 15 and 26. It has been surmised that Type I was pressed into service to help fill strong demand for 10c stamps after demonetization of the earlier issue. The 10c stamps paid the transcontinental rate, the ship-letter rate and certain rates to foreign countries. The Plate 4 Type I stamps left very little space between the stamps for the 12-gauge perforation holes. Examples of Scott 62B are rarely seen with margins framing the design on all sides.

With 2000 and 2017 P.F. certificates. With 2008 P.S.E. certificate (XF 90; SMQ $4,500.00). Only two grade higher (at 95) and two others equal this grade.

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THE FIRST DESIGN 10-CENT 1861 ISSUE. AN EXTREMELY DIFFICULT STAMP TO FIND IN SUCH PRISTINE CONDITION. ESPECIALLY DESIRABLE WITH THE RED CANCEL.

The 10c 1861 "First Design" (or Type I from Plate 4) is extremely difficult to find in well-centered and sound condition. This is partly due to the narrow spacing on Plate 4, which was used for the earliest printing. This stamp is nearly the equal of the 10c Type I in our Sale 953 (lot 299), which realized $25,000 hammer.

Ex Zoellner. With 1992 and 2006 P.F. certificates. With 2008 P.S.E. certificate (XF 90; SMQ $4,050.00). Only one has graded higher to date and only two have graded higher.
