10c Jefferson Davis frameline single
- Mint with "POD" [Post Office Department] stamped on reverse. The central motif is a portrait of Jefferson Davis, designed and line engraved on steel by John Archer, and then transferred to a copper plate. The distinguishing incised lines had been ruled as intended guidelines for making transfers. This issue is referred to by students as the 'Frameline' to distinguish it from the other 10-cent Davis designs, particularly the Type I (Scott 11), which is essentially the same design without the bordering frames.
