Description:10k Arms imperforate, plate II, mint (hinge remainder) with large part gum. There is possibly a tiny ink trace visible under UV-light, at right bottom margin just touching the frame line. One of the nicest of the so-called “mint original gum” examples in existence, copy of cert. Ferchenbauer included saying “…no ink trace visible…” Exhibition item and very rare. According to the most prominent expert on Russia it`s likely that there are no really mint original gum examples of the number 1 of Russia existing; other sources assume that 2 mint original gum examples still exist.
