The Civil War, featuring the 'Ambassador' Collection continued...

Engraved Issues (Scott 8-10) continued...
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
260 ogbl Image10c Blue, "TEN" (9). Vertical block of 22 from the left pane with huge left sheet margin, original gum, creases (a bit heavy between left two vertical rows), scattered toned spots, bottom stamp at right clipped corner, couple pinholes, manuscript "Confederate Stamps" in margin probably written during or after the war when the stamps were found

FINE-VERY FINE APPEARANCE. ONE OF THE LARGEST KNOWN MULTIPLES OF THE CONFEDERATE STATES "TEN" ISSUE. A MARVELOUS ARTIFACT OF THE EARLY 10-CENT ENGRAVED PRINTING FROM THE FIRST DIE AND COPPER PLATE.

This is the largest multiple we have offered in one of our auctions since the 1990s and in all our Rarities sales since 1964. An unused block of 30 with the plate bruise showing is illustrated in the original Dietz catalogue, but we cannot trace its history since 1929, and it is possible that it was cut into smaller blocks.

Ex Kilbourne. Scott value $25,650.00 as blocks of four, pairs and singles (Image)

265 c Image10c Blue, "TEN" (9). Horizontal strip of seven, large margins all around, tied by five strikes of "Darlington C.H. S.C. Jun. 2" (ca. 1863) circular datestamp on large blue courthouse cover to Marianna Fla., court docketing at left also ties end stamp in strip, light bend thru center stamp, couple tiny scrapes in margins, cover has typical edgewear and faint stains, but this artifact is in its original condition as discovered

EXTREMELY FINE. THIS IS THE LARGEST USED MULTIPLE OF THE RARE 10-CENT "TEN" ISSUE ON OR OFF COVER -- NO OTHER COMES CLOSE TO THIS STRIP'S SIZE OR QUALITY. IN OUR OPINION, THIS COVER IS ONE OF THE MOST OUTSTANDING ITEMS IN CONFEDERATE PHILATELY.

A photograph of this extraordinary cover appears in the 1929 Dietz book (page 275), and its existence is noted among the listings for the 10c "TEN" issue. However, the cover was previously owned by Edward S. Knapp and was sold to John H. Hall after Knapp's Confederate collection was dispersed privately -- where it remained for more than 50 years until sold by Siegel in 2000 to Lincoln Kilbourne (Sale 823, lot 501).

The strip shows the erratic alignment of the entries on the "TEN" plate, with the center stamp significantly higher than the others in the row. The difficulty Archer & Daly experienced laying out the "TEN" plate is probably due to the absence of transfer guide dots. The subsequent Frameline plate was etched with lines to facilitate uniform spacing and alignment.

266 c Image10c Blue, "TEN" (9). Full margins, lightly creased and slight edge toning, tied by "Richmond Va. Jun. 30" (1863) circular datestamp on yellow cover to Hanover C.H. Va. with Mounted Dragoon and Verse Patriotic design (SM-1, Verse 13), few toning specks

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. AN EXTREMELY RARE "TEN" USE ON A PATRIOTIC COVER.

The 10c "Ten" Issue is very rare on Patriotic covers. The few examples in Power Search are on the common 11-Star Flag design (F11-16). This use on the Mounted Dragoon design is much more desirable.

(?)" double-circle datestamp on yellow cover with 11-Star Confederate Flag and Verse Patriotic design (F11-16, Verse 13), to Zain Manor N.C., the presence of an additional "Tawboro N.C. Aug. 17" manuscript postmark and waterstains indicating an earlier stamp was removed suggest that the cover was re-used in correspondence between the same parties (such forms of adversity usage are known)

VERY FINE. AN OUTSTANDING AND RARE "TEN" PATRIOTIC USE.
