Used example of the scarce deep red purple shade of the 10c Consort from the 1859 First Cents issue, perf 11 x 11. Identified by a very knowledgeable collector as printing 3B, Whitworth's purple brown. Small faults noted (including a touch of toning) but still a great First Cents reference item. 2020 Scott Classic US$1,100.00=
