2307 ng Image30c Red Orange, First Color (61). Part original gum called "small part" on most recent certificate, vibrant color, centered to right with perfs just touching, light diagonal crease at top right (a typical characteristic of the 30c First Color)

FINE EXAMPLE OF THE RARE 30-CENT 1861 FIRST COLOR.

Our census of Scott 61, available at https://siegelauctions.com/census/us/scott/61 , contains a total of 33 examples, including one in the Miller collection at The New York Public Library. Virtually all are centered to one side, and many are centered to two sides. A characteristic common to most examples of the 30c 1861 First Color is creasing, which in some cases is very severe and in others barely visible. Only six stamps with original gum are free of faults, and among those a few have a nibbed perf or two.

Census no. 61-OG-09. Ex Waterhouse, Crocker and "Ambassador" (Siegel Sale 300) and from our 1995 Rarities sale. With 1955 and 2008 P.F. certificates (Image)

2308 og Image90c Blue, First Design (62). Original gum, choice centering with well-balanced margins, deep shade and proof-like impression, slightly rounded corner at top left not mentioned on either accompanying certificate, tiny thin spot at top center

EXTREMELY FINE APPEARANCE. THE SECOND RAREST STAMP OF THE 1861 FIRST DESIGNS AND COLORS. ONLY EIGHT EXAMPLES OF THE 90-CENT FIRST DESIGN WITH ORIGINAL GUM ARE RECORDED. A BEAUTIFUL AND EXTREMELY RARE CLASSIC STAMP.

Our census of Scott 62, available at https://siegelauctions.com/census/us/scott/62 , contains 22 examples, including one copy in the Miller Collection at the New York Public Library and another copy certified as a privately-perforated No. 62a, which comes from a set in the Col. Green sale that was signed by John Luff (we believe this stamp to be genuine). Another has been certified as genuine with a trial cancel. Excluding the NYPL copy and the ex-Green stamp just noted, only eight examples of the 90c First Design are available with original gum. Of these eight, only three are sound. The example offered here, with a tiny thin spot, has one of the least noticeable faults of the remaining five original-gum stamps.

Census no. 62-OG-03. Ex "Bayou" and Wingate. With 1955 and 2001 P.F. certificates, the former not mentioning the tiny thin spot. (Image)

2311 og Image3c Pink (64). Original gum, radiant color in the true Pink shade, vertical crease at center

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A SCARCE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1861 3-CENT PINK

The 3c 1861 Pink (Scott 64) is one of the most difficult stamps of the 1861-66 Issue to find in sound, well-centered, original-gum condition with fresh color. The nature of the ink used to print the 3c Pink shade is such that over the course of time, with exposure to light and other adverse elements, the color tends to oxidize or lose its vibrancy. The example offered here retains that vibrancy of color.
