149   Image10c Dark Green, First Design (62B). Wide margins and choice centering, wonderful dark shade and intense impression of the First Design printing, which provides the backdrop for a vivid red "New York Paid Oct. 20" circular datestamp

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A STUNNING USED EXAMPLE OF THE 10-CENT GREEN FIRST DESIGN, WHICH IS ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT OF THE 1861 ISSUES TO OBTAIN IN SUCH SUPERB CONDITION.

The 10c 1861 First Design (or Type I) was printed from Plate 4, which left very little space between the stamps for the 12-gauge perforation holes. Examples of Scott 62B (or 58) are rarely seen with margins framing the design on all sides. The stamp offered here is the rare exception, and it is even more remarkable as a used copy, free of faults, and with a complementary red cancel.

EXTREMELY FINE. A HANDSOME USED EXAMPLE OF THE 10-CENT 1861 FIRST DESIGN. AN EXTREMELY DIFFICULT STAMP TO FIND IN THIS PRISTINE CONDITION.

The 10c is the only denomination of the 1861-66 Issue that was actually issued in two types. Type I, Scott 62B, was printed from Plate 4. Type II stamps -- Scott 68 and its grilled counterparts -- were printed from Plates 15 and 26. It has been surmised that Type I was pressed into service to help fill strong demand for 10c stamps after demonetization of the earlier issue. The 10c stamps paid the transcontinental rate, the ship-letter rate and certain rates to foreign countries. The Plate 4 Type I stamps left very little space between the stamps for the 12-gauge perforation holes. Examples of Scott 62B are rarely seen with margins framing the design on all sides.

With 2000 and 2017 P.F. certificates. With 2008 P.S.E. certificate (XF 90; SMQ $4,500.00). Only two grade higher (at 95) and two others equal this grade. (Image)

VERY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL AND SCARCE EXAMPLE OF THE ELUSIVE ULTRAMARINE SHADE OF THE ONE-CENT 1861 ISSUE.

Don Evans devotes almost an entire column in his book on the 1c 1861 Issue to a discussion of the Ultramarine shade, in which he notes they are "extremely scarce" (p. 33). We have offered only three other used examples since keeping computerized records.

With 2009 P.S.E. and copy of 2013 P.F. certificates -- the former as a strip of three and the latter as a pair (this the bottom stamp in both multiples) (Image)

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THE ONE-CENT 1861 ISSUE IN THE ELUSIVE DARK BLUE COLOR. THIS IS ONE OF THE SCARCEST SHADES OF THE ONE-CENT.

Don Evans, in his book on the 1c 1861 Issue (p. 33), notes that the Dark Blue shade is very close to the Indigo shade used for the "Premiere Gravure" (Scott No. 55) and in fact he believed that this should be the formal designated color name for this shade.

Ex Kirke and "Clipper City". With 1992 and 2017 P.F. certificates. With 2006 P.S.E. certificate (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $3,850.00). This is the highest grade awarded and it is shared by only one other (Image)
