    Description

    A SUPERB MINT 10¢ 1861 ISSUE

    10c Green (68), marvelous, mathematically precise centering with huge, beautifully balanced margins, strikingly deep color and full, lightly hinged original gum; wonderfully fresh and absolutely Superb. Scott $1,200.

    SMQ $11,800


    Expertization: PSE Encapsulated graded 98

    A TRULY REMARKABLE GEM WITH EXTRAORDINARY MARGINS AND INCREDIBLE COLOR; SUPERB 98 IS THE HIGHEST GRADE YET AWARDED A 10¢ 1861, THIS BEING ONE OF JUST TWO SO HONORED.

    With margins of a size that one never associates with the 10¢ 1861 (maybe the re-issue, but not the original), and perfect centering within these lavish borders, one has located what must certainly be considered the finest mint single extant.
