The Edward Morton Collection of Outstanding Quality United States Stamps continued...

10c-12c 1857-60 Issue (Scott 31-36B)
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
121   Image10c Green, Ty. I (31). Bright shade, wide and balanced margins clearly showing the type characteristics, unobtrusive strike of circular datestamp cancel

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 10-CENT TYPE I, WHICH CLEARLY SHOWS THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE TYPE, AND IS GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E. AND THE P.F.

Type I stamps are only found on the 20 positions that comprise the bottom row of the plate. Due to narrow spacing on the plate and difficulties in aligning the perforating machine, stamps at the bottom of the plate usually have perforations cutting into the bottom portion of the design. This is a serious drawback, because Type I is defined as having the design complete at bottom. The stamp offered here, which is very well-centered and clearly shows the type characteristics, is a true condition rarity.

With 1987 and 2007 P.F. certificates (XF-Superb 95). With 2013 P.S.E. certificate (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $12,500.00). This is the highest grade awarded and it is shared by only five others (Image)

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A PHENOMENAL EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 10-CENT TYPE II, GRADED SUPERB 98 BY P.S.E. -- THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED.

With 2009 P.S.E. certificate (Superb 98; SMQ $11,000.00). Also accompanied by 2009 P.F. certificate graded XF-Superb 95, but we feel P.S.E. got it right on this stamp. Superb 98 is the highest grade awarded in the P.S.E. Population Report and it is shared by only one other, a statistic that has not changed in a decade. (Image)

125   Image10c Green, Ty. IV (34). Position 74L1, recut at top, pretty shade, beautiful centering with wide and balanced margins, neat strike of circular datestamp cancel

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THE PERFORATED 1857 10-CENT TYPE IV, GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E. -- THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED.

10c Type IV stamps are defined by the recut of one or both outer lines at the top or bottom of the design. Type IV stamps come from only seven scattered positions on the left pane and one position on the right pane of Plate 1. Therefore, only 4% of the stamps from Plate 1 are Type IV, and since their population is low they are difficult to find with such choice centering.

Ex Merlin. With 2019 P.F. and 2008 P.S.E. certificates (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $7,500.00). Only three stamps share this desirable grade, with none higher (Image)

VERY FINE. AN EXTREMELY RARE MULTIPLE OF THE 10-CENT 1857 ISSUE, CONTAINING TYPE IV AND USED ON A QUADRUPLE-RATE COVER TO MEXICO FROM THE FAMOUS HARGOUS CORRESPONDENCE.

VERY FINE AND CHOICE. AN EXTREMELY RARE EXAMPLE OF THE 12-CENT 1857 ISSUE FROM PLATE 1 WITH A GREEN CANCEL.
