188°   Image5¢ Red Brown (1), large margins to ample, sharp impression from cleaned plate--the shade is described on certificate as "Pale Red Brown", but we think it is probably an Orange Brown that has lost a bit of its orange hue (see lots 184-185 for comparable shades)--two strikes of red grid cancel, Very Fine and choice, ex Saadi, with 1988 P.F. certificate (Image)

189°   ImageOne of the finest condition 5¢ Orange Brown pairs in existence

5¢ Orange Brown (1b), horizontal pair with right sheet margin, large margins other sides, left stamp Dot in "S" variety, brilliant color and strong impression from the cleaned plate on blued paper, two neat strikes of red "PAID" straightline handstamp

Extremely Fine Gem sheet-margin pair of the 5¢ 1847 Issue in the Orange Brown shade. A true condition rarity of the 1847 Issue.

This pair presents an interesting contrast to the 1847 First Printing Orange Brown shade and impression of the pair offered in this sale as lot 136. Although both are listed under Scott 1b, they are very different looking colors. We can envision a striking side-by-side mounting of these two superb pairs, showing the difference between the Orange Brown from two different printings.

Ex "Connoisseur", Dr. Vernon R. Morris, Jr., Frederick R. Mayer and from our 1969 Rarities sale. With clear 1974, 1994 (copy) and 2005 P.F. certificates. (Image)

191° c Image5¢ Red Brown (1), exceptionally rich color and strong impression--shows the softness of background lines indicative of cleaned plate, but the impression is exceptionally sharp, the shade is certified as belonging to Ridgway's "Cinnamon Brown" family--large even margins, faint red grid cancel with matching "Fredonia N.Y. Sep. 22" circular datestamp on buff envelope to Erie, Pennsylvania, inconsequential small sealing wax stain on front not mentioned on accompanying certificate, Extremely Fine stamp in an elusive and beautiful color, ex Saadi, with 1994 P.F. certificate stating "Cinnamon Brown" (Ridgway XV-15'-k), it was submitted as a shade variety of Scott 1b, so we place it after the other Orange Brown shades (Image)
