239 c Image10c Deep Carmine (5a var). Huge to large margins all around, intense color in the deep end of the Carmine shade spectrum, tied by light strike of "Knoxville Ten. Jul. 16" circular datestamp on oatmeal cover to Kingston Tenn., 1862 docketing at left, barely reduced at top where opened

EXTREMELY FINE. THIS IS ONE OF THE FINEST EXAMPLES OF THE 10-CENT CARMINE ON COVER. A MAGNIFICENT CONDITION RARITY.

The spectrum of Carmine shades, ranging from bright to deep, ends with this intense shade. Its existence has caused the current generation of certificate issuers to fumble the correct classification of Carmine versus Rose shades.

Ex Antrim, Weatherly, our 1983 and 1984 Rarities sales and Kilbourne. With note on back which reads "Carmine, Deepest color I ever saw, Finest copy known - 1951" and initialed "L.L.S." (Shenfield). (Image)
