Sale Number 941, Lot Number 1021, 1857-60 Issue10c Green, Ty. III (33), 10c Green, Ty. III (33)10c Green, Ty. III (33). Original gum, barest trace of hinging, brilliant color, wide margins, full perforations all around

VERY FINE AND CHOICE. A BEAUTIFUL LIGHTLY-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 10-CENT TYPE III. SCARCE IN SUCH PRISTINE CONDITION.

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 McKinney. With 1999 P.F. certificate
