85 og image24c Brown Lilac (70a). Distinctive Deep Brown Lilac shade -- seen among used examples but very rarely seen with original gum -- the gum is full and has characteristic brownish toning, bright white paper and unusually well-centered

EXTREMELY FINE FOR A 24-CENT 1861 SHADE. RARELY ENCOUNTERED WITH ORIGINAL GUM. A MUST-HAVE STAMP FOR THE COLLECTOR ASSEMBLING A RANGE OF THE 1861 COLORS.

As noted in several of the descriptions of original-gum 1861's in our past sales, these stamps are available in unused no-gum condition or low grades of original-gum condition, however, the combination of original gum and choice centering is so rare that Scott values can be very misleading. In the case of this 24c, the unusually-deep Brown Lilac shade adds another dimension of rarity -- perhaps comparable to the difference between a 5c Red Brown (75) and 5c Brown (76).

86 og image24c Violet, Thin Paper (70c). Original gum, deep rich color and proof-like impression, choice centering with well-balanced margins, small gum covered thin spot at top left

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1861 24-CENT VIOLET ON THIN PAPER.

The 24c 1861 exists in four basic shades of Violet. All four are rare, especially in sound original-gum condition. The stamp offered here is remarkable in that the Violet ink retains much of its purplish hue, especially in the darker engraved areas, which is most unusual among unused or original-gum examples.
