    Milton 2S10F.1d 10¢ Second Issue Plate Proof Gem New. This 10¢ Proof, like the 5¢ appearing ten or so lots back, was acquired in October of 1999 when Tom O'Mara purchased Doug Hales' entire collection. Our description of the Five Cent works perfectly here, "An incredibly sharp, clean print from the completed [Ten] Cent Second Issue plate. It's on India paper mounted to a card prior to printing. Printed with so much pressure that, even though the card is unusually heavy, the embossing still comes through. The edges of the single subject plate are punched heavily into the card. The combination of the lack of the bronze oval as well as no cancellations or specimen stamp allow a beautifully clear look at the design exactly as intended." This and its 5¢ mate were two of our favorite items from Doug's great collection, and we're very pleased to have the opportunity to pass them on from Tom O'Mara to the next generation of collectors.
