5c 1847 Issue, Corner Copies (Scott 1)
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
22   Image5c Deep Orange Brown (1b). Position 1L1, enormous margins all around including top left corner sheet margins and entire frameline of adjoining stamp at bottom, extraordinary coppery shade on deeply blued paper, nicely contrasted by blue grid cancels, faint crease mostly in top margin

EXTREMELY FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE CORNER-MARGIN EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT 1847 ISSUE IN A SPECTACULAR DEEP ORANGE BROWN SHADE.

This distinctive Deep Orange Brown shade is rarely encountered. Compared with many 5c 1847 Orange Brown (or Brown Orange) stamps, which cover a wide spectrum of shades (including some undeserving washed-out examples with certificates), this intense Orange Brown on deeply blued paper is in a class of its own. To find this shade represented by a corner-margin example is even more remarkable. In fact, this is the only 5c Orange Brown corner-margin example we can locate in our database using Power Search.
