Sale 1232, Lot 1285, 1913-15 Panama-Pacific Issue (Scott 397-404)10c Panama-Pacific, Perf 10 (404). Mint N.H. with bottom plate no. 6143 selvage, vibrant color and detailed impression on bright paper, almost mathematically perfect centering with wide margins

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB MINT NEVER-HINGED PLATE NUMBER EXAMPLE OF THE 10-CENT PERF 10 PANAMA-PACIFIC ISSUE, GRADED SUPERB 98 BY THE P.F.

Long before numerical grading, the rarity of 10c Panama-Pacific Perf 10 stamps in superb condition (hinged or not) was well-established. The 10-gauge perfs on this issue are almost always uneven or shortened from separation. Centering is rarely above Fine. Finally, the Orange ink on many examples has darkened. This stamp is the exception on all counts.

With 2020 P.F. certificate (Superb 98)
