181° c Image5¢ Orange Brown (1b), full to huge margins including right sheet margin, beautiful rich color described as Orange Brown on certificate--the impression is either from the worn plate or possibly a late impression from cleaned plate, and we think the color is Brown Orange--cancelled by greenish-blue grid with matching "Kennebunk Me. Mar. 13" (1851) circular datestamp on blue folded letter to South Berwick, Maine, stamp has light horizontal crease at top, still Very Fine and attractive use, the USPCS census lists only two 1847 covers from Kennebunk (both 5¢), which received no stamps of either denomination, ex Eno and Boker, with 2013 P.F. certificate (Image)

183°   Image5¢ Orange Brown (1b), huge margins to ample including top left corner sheet margins, dry impression from worn plate--1992 certificate describes shade as Brown Orange and 1994 certificate describes shade as Orange (Scott 1c var), but we believe at this point in the stamp's life it is neither of these shades and is therefore offered as Orange Brown--small sealed tear at bottom right, Extremely Fine appearance, ex West, Gore and Saadi, with 1992 and 1994 P.F. certificates, Scott value as 1b $725.00 (Image)
