The Edward Morton Collection of Outstanding Quality United States Stamps continued...

1861-66 Issue, cont. (Scott 67-70d)
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
179   Image5c Buff (67). Radiant color nicely complemented by blue Baltimore Md. circular datestamp, outstanding centering with balanced margins

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1861 5-CENT BUFF STAMP IN TERMS OF COLOR, CENTERING, PERFORATIONS AND CANCELLATION. THIS STAMP, GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E., IS EASILY ONE OF THE FINEST IN EXISTENCE.

Due to narrow spacing on the 5c plate, it is very difficult to find centered copies with the perforations clear of the design on all sides. The stamp offered here, with its choice centering, fresh color and neat blue Baltimore cancel is a condition rarity.

Ex Mayer and "Scarsdale". With 1996, 2003 P.F. and 2013 P.S.E. certificates (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $6,500.00). This is the highest grade awarded to a Scott 67 in any condition category, and it is shared by only four others. (Image)

180   Image5c Brown Yellow (67a). Perfectly centered, bright pastel shade, neat strike of circular datestamp cancel

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. WITHOUT QUESTION ONE OF THE FINEST USED EXAMPLES OF THE 1861 5-CENT BROWN YELLOW IN EXISTENCE. A REMARKABLE STAMP AND TRULY RARE IN THIS SUPERB CONDITION.

Due to narrow spacing on the 5c plate, it is very difficult to find centered copies with the perforations clear of the design on all sides. The town datestamp on this 5c Brown Yellow is also very unusual -- most examples come with cancellations from the larger post offices (Boston, New York, etc.).

181   Image5c Olive Yellow (67b). Brilliant color that is distinctly different from the other two Scott-listed shades for No. 67, bold strike of 7-bar grid cancel, trace of additional red cancel at top, well-balanced margins

EXTREMELY FINE EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT 1861 IN THE DISTINCTIVE OLIVE YELLOW SHADE. THIS IS THE SCARCEST SHADE OF THE 5-CENT 1861 ISSUE, AND IT IS EXCEEDINGLY DIFFICULT TO FIND IN SUCH CHOICE CONDITION.

We have offered fewer than 20 unduplicated examples of the Olive Yellow shade in any condition since keeping computerized records. Of these two were unused. It is very difficult to find in sound and centered condition.

182   Image10c Green (68). Mathematically perfect centering with Jumbo margins, bright color and crisp impression, neat strike of grid cancel

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS PHENOMENAL 10-CENT 1861 STAMP IS GRADED GEM 100 JUMBO BY P.S.E. -- THE HIGHEST GRADE POSSIBLE. THIS IS ALSO THE ONLY PERFORATED STAMP PRIOR TO THE 1869 PICTORIAL ISSUE TO ACHIEVE THIS PERFECT GRADE. A TRULY REMARKABLE STAMP IN EVERY RESPECT.

The 10c is the only denomination of the 1861-66 Issue that was actually issued in two types. Type I, Scott 62B, was printed from Plate 4. Type II stamps -- Scott 68 and its grilled counterparts -- were printed from Plates 15 and 26. It has been surmised that Type I was pressed into service to help fill strong demand for 10c stamps after demonetization of the earlier issue. The 10c stamps paid the transcontinental rate, the ship-letter rate and certain rates to foreign countries.

Despite the high production numbers this is a difficult denomination to obtain in superb quality. Of the 175 used copies sent to P.S.E. for grading, only six grade higher than 95 (including the stamp offered here). Another denomination produced in much greater quantity, the 3c, has failed to achieve the 100J grade despite almost 500 submissions.

Ex "Natalee Grace". With 1997 and 2019 P.F. certificates. With 2009 and 2013 P.S.E. certificates (Gem 100 Jumbo; SMQ $8,000.00 as 100, unpriced in the 100J grade). This is the earliest perforated U.S. stamp to achieve this highest of grades -- the next stamp to be graded 100J is the 12c 1869 Pictorial (one copy, used) (Image)
