204° c ImageA rare and choice on-cover example of the spectacular and elusive Red Orange shade

5¢ Red Orange (1c), Radiant color in a true Red Orange shade (for many years referred to as Orange by such philatelic luminaries as Dr. Carroll Chase and Stanley Ashbrook), with a characteristic worn-plate impression, large margins to full including portion of adjoining stamp at bottom, tied by red grid cancel with matching "New-York Jun. 16" (1851) circular datestamp on buff envelope to Sand Lake, New York, stamp with small and faint creases at bottom right and in top margin not mentioned on accompanying certificate

Extremely Fine appearance. The Red Orange is the rarest of all 5¢ 1847 shades and is extremely difficult to find on cover. A highly important 1847 cover in choice condition.

Ex Hart. With clear 1997 P.F. certificate. Scott value $10,500.00. (Image)
