FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE UNUSED EXAMPLE OF THE 1855 10-CENT TYPE IV WITH ORIGINAL GUM, WHICH IS ONE OF THE RAREST OF ALL CLASSIC UNITED STATES STAMPS.

As an indication of rarity, we have offered only nine unused copies (four without gum, five with gum) in all of our Rarities sales and in the last 14 years of auctions. The last time we sold an example with any original gum was in the 1999 Golin sale (Sale 812).

IN SUCH WONDERFUL CONDITION.^<><>12c Black (17). Original gum, lightly hinged, large margins to ample at sides, intense shade and proof-like impression

VERY FINE AND CHOICE. A BEAUTIFUL ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 12-CENT 1851 ISSUE. SCARCE IN SUCH WONDERFUL CONDITION.

As multiples demonstrate, the spacing between stamps on the plate was very narrow. Sound original-gum examples with four margins are great rarities, and most have been harvested from larger multiples. A search of our computerized records found very few sound original-gum examples with four margins such as the example offered here -- the last one we sold was in October 2006.
