Looks like you are scanning at a low dpi and enlarging.

Instead, scan at 300 or 600 dpi and crop and reduce size to a max of 800 pix wide for the discussion board.

Sorry but it is not a #10. #10 is an Orange Brown and the lines are very crisp and well defined having come from the first printings of the plates. It is one of the most commonly mis-identified early U.S. stamps.

Thank you Roy, will try this.

Thanks AntoniusRa. I have had these for a long time (years) and always thought they were
Sc#11, just wanted to make sure. On cover still make them very collectable.
Thanks again
Jack
