272 c Image10c Blue, "TEN" (9). Large margins, light pre-use vertical crease, tied by "Richmond Va. Sep. 13" circular datestamp on prisoner-of-war buff cover to Fancy Grove Va. endorsed "By Flag of Truce via Fortress Monroe, care Maj. Jno. E. Mulford", clear strike of "Prisoner's Letter Examined. Fort Delaware Del." (Ty. I) oval handstamp, U.S. postage paid by 3c Rose (65), couple tiny edge flaws, tied by target cancel, "Delaware City Del. Aug. 29" circular datestamp, some staining near bottom and slight overall soiling

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. AN EXTREMELY RARE USE OF THE 10-CENT "TEN" GENERAL ISSUE STAMP ON A MIXED-FRANKING PRISONER-OF-WAR COVER. THIS IS THE FINEST OF ONLY THREE FULL COVER USES KNOWN TO US.

We record only three "TEN" general issue stamps on prisoner-of-war covers plus a front only (used from Point Lookout). Of the other full covers, one is faulty with tears, stains, and a replaced backflap (used from Johnson's Island). The other has a "TEN" stamp that has been trimmed to shape (used from Fort Delaware). This cover, with only slight cosmetic issues, is the finest of the three.

274 og Image10c Blue, Frameline (10). Positions 53-59, horizontal strip of seven, showing full framelines at top and left, original gum, wonderful richness of color and depth of impression -- a classic early copper plate printing -- Positions 54-55 and 58 with vertical creases, Position 56 small thin spot and tiny tear

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. THIS IS THE FAMOUS LILLY STRIP OF SEVEN OF THE CONFEDERATE STATES 10-CENT FRAMELINE ISSUE -- THE LARGEST RECORDED MULTIPLE.

The 10c Frameline (Scott 10) is the rarest Confederate States General Issue design type in unused condition, particularly with original gum. Singles with original gum are very elusive, and multiples are of another order of rarity. There are perhaps four or five strips of four known, with or without gum. This strip of seven is the largest recorded unused multiple. We offered a different strip of seven in our 1980 Rarities sale, which had black marks on four stamps (ex Ferrary, pictured in Dietz). There also exists a single block of four without gum (ex Kilbourne, Siegel Sale 1190, lot 1389). The strip offered here was acquired by the Kilbournes in the April 1967 sale of the Josiah K. Lilly collection, where it realized $3,400 hammer.

FINE-VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE STRIP OF FOUR OF THE CONFEDERATE STATES 10-CENT FRAMELINE ISSUE -- ONE OF THE FEW REMAINING UNUSED MULTIPLES OF FOUR.

Scott 10 is the rarest Confederate States General Issue stamp in unused condition. There are perhaps four or five strips of four known, as well as the strip of seven offered in this sale as lot 274 (ex Lilly and Kilbourne), plus another strip of seven (with black marks) from our 1980 Rarities sale and the block of four (without gum) offered in the Kilbourne collection (Sale 1190, lot 1389).

276   Image10c Blue, Frameline (10). Horizontal strip of six, two large margins at left and bottom with framelines complete, clear at right and slightly in at top, cancelled by four strikes of "Mobile Ala. Jun. 18, 1863" double-circle datestamp, a few negligible short creases around the perimeter

FINE-VERY FINE. THIS IS THE FINER OF ONLY TWO RECORDED USED STRIPS OF SIX OF THE 10-CENT FRAMELINE ISSUE -- THE LARGEST RECORDED USED MULTIPLES.

Multiples of the 10c Frameline Issue larger than a pair are very rare in either used or unused condition. In unused condition there are perhaps four or five strips of four known, as well as two strips of seven and the unique block of four. Used multiples are also extremely rare. There are two recorded strips of six -- the strip offered here and one on piece with an additional single, which is ex Knapp and Hall. The strip on piece is Extremely Fine but has razor cuts between each stamp about three-quarters up from bottom, along with other small faults (see Sale 823, lot 457). Apart from the two strips of seven, there are a handful of strips of four or three. (Image)

278   Image10c Blue, Frameline (10). Large to huge margins with three complete framelines and almost half of frameline at top, showing top curved line recut, light strike of town circular datestamp cancel leaves entire design clearly visible, a few minor scattered toned spots have been carefully removed and is not noted on accompanying certificate

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A STUNNING USED EXAMPLE OF THE CONFEDERATE STATES 10-CENT FRAMELINE ISSUE.

The framelines between the stamps define Scott 10. The lines were engraved on the copper plate and served as a guide for the siderographer when aligning the transfers to make the plate. Each stamp shares framelines with the adjoining positions, so four-frameline copies are exceedingly rare.

With 2014 P.F. certificate (XF-Superb 95). This was offered in our Sale 1064 described with "scattered toned spots", which were carefully removed prior to the certificate being issued (Image)

279 c Image10c Blue, Frameline (10). Complete framelines at sides, all but 1mm complete at bottom and part frameline at top, beautiful bright color, tied by "Richmond Va. Apr. 23, 1863" circular datestamp on cover to Brownsburgh Va., barely reduced at left

EXTREMELY FINE. A GORGEOUS 10-CENT FRAMELINE ON COVER. RARELY FOUND WITH SUCH A LARGE PORTION OF THE FRAMELINES.

The most important characteristic of Scott 10 is the frameline around each stamp. The lines were engraved on the plate and served as a guide for the siderographer when aligning the transfer roll to make the plate. Each stamp shares framelines with the adjoining positions, which means most stamps show only a portion of the four framelines. A stamp that captures most or all of the framelines does so at the expense of its neighboring positions, and is very rare.

For many years this April 23 cover was the earliest known use of the 10c Frameline. The EDU is now April 19.

EXTREMELY FINE 10-CENT FRAMELINE STAMP ON A BEAUTIFUL COVER.

The most important characteristic of Scott 10 is the frameline around each stamp. The lines were engraved on the plate and served as a guide for the siderographer when aligning the transfer roll to make the plate. Each stamp shares framelines with the adjoining positions, which means most stamps show only a portion of the four framelines. A stamp that captures most or all of the framelines does so at the expense of its neighboring positions, and is very rare.

EXTREMELY FINE AND SPECTACULAR COVER. THE FRAMELINE STAMP IS EXTREMELY RARE ON A PATRIOTIC COVER OF ANY DESIGN -- THIS 8-STAR DESIGN IS A RARITY IN ITS OWN RIGHT. ARGUABLY THE MOST OUTSTANDING FRAMELINE PATRIOTIC COVER KNOWN.
