Session Two (lots 2137-2417): Monday, October 19, 2020, at 1:30pm continued...

3c-10c 1857-60 Issue (Scott 25-35) continued...
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
2258 og Image10c Green, Ty. I (31). Slightly disturbed original gum described on accompanying certificate as "unused o.g.", rich color, especially wide margins at top and bottom which clearly show the type characteristics, few slight creases

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 10-CENT TYPE I. PARTICULARLY RARE WITH FOUR MARGINS.

The scarcer types of the perforated 10c 1857 are rarely found with original gum, and many have perfs cutting into the design on at least one side. The example offered here, clearly showing the characteristics of the type, is quite desirable.

With 1988 P.F. certificate (Image)

2263 bl Image10c Green, Ty. II/III (32-33). Block of four, top stamps Type II, bottom stamps Type III, incredibly deep rich color, choice centering, neat strikes of "San Francisco Cal. Mar. 1859" circular datestamp

VERY FINE AND CHOICE. A BEAUTIFUL TYPE II-III COMBINATION BLOCK OF THE PERFORATED 10-CENT 1857 ISSUE. VERY RARELY FOUND IN SOUND CONDITION WITH GOOD CENTERING, RICH COLOR AND A NEAT CANCEL.

A Power Search review found only one other sound block of this combination, irregardless of centering. That block, in a lighter shade, was the partner to this block in the Twigg-Smith collection and is also ex Hansen (Sale 963, lot 381).

2264 og Image10c Green, Ty. III (33). Original gum, barest trace of hinging, brilliant color, wide margins, full perforations all around, tiny thin spot at top right

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A SCARCE LIGHTLY-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 10-CENT TYPE III.

The first perforated 10c stamps produced by Toppan Carpenter from sheets printed from Plate 1 are notorious among collectors for their poor centering. They are also very scarce in original-gum condition because, unlike 10c Plate 2 stamps (Scott 35), there were no supplies on hand in 1861 when the issue was demonetized due to the outbreak of the Civil War.

Ex McKinney and Odeneal. With 1999 and 2007 P.F. certificates, the former not mentioning the thin spot. (Image)

2266 ng Image10c Green, Ty. IV (34). Position 64L1, recut at top and bottom, the scarcest and most desirable of the recut positions, small part disturbed gum variously described as "original" on older P.F. certificate, as "traces" on newer P.F. certificate and as "of unknown origin" on P.S.E. certificate, rich color, unpunched perf at bottom and slightly short perf at left mentioned only on P.S.E. certificate

FINE APPEARANCE. THE 1857 10-CENT TYPE IV IS ONE OF THE RAREST CLASSIC UNITED STATES ISSUES IN UNUSED CONDITION.

The 1857 10c Type IV stamps come from only eight positions scattered throughout Plate 1, that have the top, bottom, or in the case of Position 64L (the stamp offered here), both lines recut. 64L1 is the only position to show both lines recut and as such it is the best example of the type. Only 4% of all 10c Plate 1 stamps produced were Type IV's, and an even smaller percentage were issued with perforations. We have only offered three others with any gum whatsoever in the past 20 years, and none of these were Position 64L1.

Ex Curtis. With 1996, 2011 P.F. and 2008 P.S.E. certificates. Scott value as no gum (Image)
