ITALY - 1869, 10c Orange brown

ITALY – 1869, 10c Orange brown – SOLD for $2,000

1869 10c Orange brown, the most incredibly well centered mint example of this rare postage due that we have ever encountered, being perfectly centered within precise large margins, in addition it is surrounded by full even perforations, strong rich color on bright paper, o.g. with h.r. and some adherence; extremely fine gem; the centering on this particular value is notoriously poor, so much so that while Sassone notes choice centering they do not put a price for the category of excellent centering, but if they did list a price it would certainly be multiples of the normal fine centering quotation that we have listed here; this stamp is simply superb centering with no reservations and of the greatest rarity; signed A. D(iena) (Scott #J2; $3,000.00)
