Sale 1096, Lot 76, 5c-10c 1857-60 Issue (Scott 27-35)10c Green, Ty. III (33). Original gum, wonderfully well-centered with wide margins, rich color

EXTREMELY FINE. ONE OF THE FINEST KNOWN ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLES OF THE 1857 10-CENT GREEN TYPE III PERFORATED ISSUE FROM PLATE ONE. A SPECTACULAR STAMP IN TERMS OF CENTERING, COLOR, IMPRESSION AND ORIGINAL GUM.

The first perforated 10c stamps produced by Toppan Carpenter from sheets printed from Plate 1 are notorious among collectors for their poor centering. They are also very scarce in original-gum condition because, unlike 10c Plate 2 stamps (Scott 35), there were no supplies on hand in 1861 when the issue was demonetized due to the outbreak of the Civil War.

Ex Angel and Golin. With 1989 P.F. certificate
