Scott No. 14    $145.

THE ULTIMATE USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1855 10¢ TYPE II IMPERFORATE, GRADED GEM 100 JUMBO BY THE PHILATELIC FOUNDATION. THE HIGHEST GRADE POSSIBLE, AND ONLY EXAMPLE TO ACHIEVE IT. AN EXTRAORDINARY STAMP IN EVERY RESPECT.

The stamp offered here is a true condition rarity with four enormous margins framing the entire stamp design. Considering that large 10¢ used blocks are rare, usually with faults and close margins, it is hard to imagine another "perfect" used example being harvested from a multiple.

This is the only example certified by the P.F. to achieve this ultimate grade, the P.S.E. has certified none in this grade.
