Scott # 16


This is a Scott # 16 Washington 10 cent type IV postage stamp.  This stamp was issued in 1855.  The outer lines have been recut at either the top or bottom label or both.  This 10 cent stamp was used a lot, not only for foreign mail but also used for coast to coast mail.  This stamp is frequently forged.
