2250 og Image5c Brick Red (27). Large part original gum, small h.r., radiant color in the true Brick Red color, certificate notes a few slightly toned perforations at right which have been carefully cleaned up, small natural fiber inclusion at bottom left

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. AN EXTREMELY RARE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 5-CENT BRICK RED SHADE.

Many collectors know this issue by type and shade, but fewer are aware of the order of production (or release). This state of confusion is partly due to the Scott Catalogue. The distinctive Brick Red shade of the 5c 1857 Issue comes first in the series of Scott-listed perforated 5c issues, but its true release date comes later in the sequence.

Based on dated covers, the 5c Type I shades were released in the following order: 1) Red Brown, Scott 28, EDU 8/23/1857; 2) Indian Red, Scott 28A, EDU 3/31/1858; 3) Brick Red, Scott 27, EDU 10/6/1858; 4) Brown, Scott 29, EDU 3/21/1859, almost certainly the last printing from the first 5c plate. The second 5c plate was made from a new six-relief transfer roll with the design projections cut away at top and bottom, to varying degrees. The Type II Brown was issued first (Scott 30A, EDU 5/4/1860), and the Orange Brown printing from the same plate followed about one year later (Scott 30, EDU 5/8/1861).

After surveying dozens of classic United States sale catalogues, we found approximately twenty stamps with original gum, allowing for duplicate offerings and excluding the one known original-gum block. Of the stamps we counted, about half had perfs touching two sides or were deeply cut into on one side. Almost two-thirds had stains or small faults.

2252 og Image5c Red Brown (28). Disturbed original gum described on accompanying certificate as "unused o.g.", lovely color, detailed impression, tiny corner margin crease at bottom right, small stained spot on Jefferson's chin

FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 5-CENT RED BROWN.

The perforated 5c Type I stamps in any shade of Red Brown are very rare in unused or original-gum condition. The number of original-gum Scott 28 singles falls somewhere between the numbers for the Brick Red (Scott 27) and the Indian Red (Scott 28A), which catalogue $80,000.00 and $160,000.00, respectively.

2257 ogbl Image5c Brown, Ty. II (30A). Block of four with narrow left selvage, original gum, lightly hinged, fresh color, well-centered for this rare block

FINE-VERY FINE ORIGINAL-GUM BLOCK OF THE 1860 5-CENT TYPE II BROWN. THE BOTTOM LEFT STAMP HAS UNUSUALLY WIDE MARGINS.

The 5c Brown Type II is far rarer in unused multiples than the Orange Brown. Unlike the 1861 Orange Brown, the earlier printing in Brown was not left in Southern post offices when the issue was demonetized in August 1861. Prior to the discovery of the block of 20 in the Frelinghuysen collection (also ex Gross, Sale 1200, lot 44), the largest recorded multiple was a block of nine. Approximately a half-dozen blocks of four are known.
