Engraved Issues (Scott 8-10)
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
249 TC Image2c Black, With Framelines, Archer & Daly, Trial Color Die Proof on Wove (8TC1). Large margins showing four full framelines around the design, intense shade and impression, small thin spots

EXTREMELY FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE ARCHER & DALY 2-CENT JACKSON TRIAL COLOR PROOF AND EXPECIALLY DESIRABLE WITH LARGE MARGINS SHOWING THE FRAMELINES.

The various catalogue listings for the 2c Archer & Daly trial color proofs with framelines are somewhat confusing and not altogether complete. All of the known examples of the 2c Engraved essay/proof have framelines, unlike the issued stamp. For this reason they could technically be classified as essays. However, the Scott, Dietz and C.S.A. catalogues list them as trial color proofs, and we have maintained that tradition here to avoid adding to the confusion.

The Black proof offered here is now listed in the Scott Catalogue, which also lists the Blue (offered in lot 250) and mentions the framelines (at our suggestion). The 1986 Dietz Catalog listed this frameline proof in Black, but not Blue. The 2012 C.S.A. Catalog expanded the listings to include the Blue trial color proof with framelines, but it erroneously eliminated this Black proof with framelines and describes the Black proof as cut close no outer framelines showing.”

Ex Dr. Burrows, Liberman and Pegram (featured along with the Blue offered in lot 250 on the front cover of Sale 1043). C.S.A. Catalog value for an example with "no outer framelines showing" is $4,000.00. Scott value (Image)

258 TC Image10c Black, "TEN", Archer & Daly, Trial Color Die Proof on Wove (9TC1e). 53 x 50 mm, intense shade, light creases and slight toning

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. THIS IS THE ONLY RECORDED EXAMPLE OF THE 10-CENT "TEN" DIE PROOF IN BLACK. AN IMPORTANT CONFEDERATE PROOF RARITY.

Ex Hall (acquired by the family prior to World War II) and Hastings. This unique proof is illustrated in the C.S.A. Catalog on p. 357 with a value of $6,000.00. The Scott U.S. Specialized Catalogue lists this as 9TC1e (Black) with an inexplicable $1,500.00 value -- this proof realized $2,600 hammer in 2001 (Sale 840, lot 139) and $3,250 hammer in 2013 (Sale 1043, lot 2321), but Scott never changed the value to reflect either of those realizations.

259 ogbl Image10c Blue, "TEN" (9). Horizontal block of ten, major double transfer in top left position (evident in denomination label), original gum, two small h.r., one or two stamps at bottom possibly Mint N.H., huge margins to just barely in at upper left, brilliant color and fresh paper

VERY FINE-EXTREMELY FINE. A PHENOMENAL LARGE MULTIPLE OF THE CONFEDERATE STATES 1863 "TEN" ISSUE. THIS IS THE FINEST BLOCK IN EXISTENCE.

The 1863 "TEN" design with the denomination spelled out was the first Archer & Daly 10c issue. Both the "Ten" and Frameline (Scott 10) were printed from copper plates. In manufacturing the "TEN" plate, Archer & Daly's siderographer attempted to enter the 200 subjects from a single-relief transfer roll, but utterly failed to achieve uniform spacing and alignment, probably because there were no transfer guide dots. This plate is truly fascinating from a philatelist's perspective, with grossly misaligned subjects, short transfers, double transfers and plate flaws that rival the pre-war 1c 1851-57 plates. To remedy the alignment problem, the subsequent copper plate was etched with lines to facilitate transfer alignment. The so-called Frameline issue was followed by production from the steel plates used to print 10c stamps from Dies A and B (Scott 11 and 12), which do not have framelines and are much more uniformly aligned.

Large blocks of the "TEN" issue are rare, and almost all of the known blocks have faults. This sound block of ten with original gum, large margins, brilliant color and fresh paper, is without question the finest extant. We are confident in our opinion after compiling a census of multiples for the ultimate purpose of plating the "Ten" issue, which is a work in progress.

Ex Dr. Brandon. Scott value $12,500.00 as two blocks of four and a pair does not accurately speak to the high quality of this multiple (Image)
