Robert A. Siegel Auction Galleries, Inc. Sale: 1210

United States
State Revenue Issues: Delaware, Virginia, Maryland

Sale No: 1210
Lot No: 2104
Symbol:
Cat No: RM291

image 5c Delaware (RM291; SRS DS2). Colorless, detailed impression at top left of writ of execution from Kent County, laid paper, filed January 30, 1794, tiny toned specks barely worth mentioning

VERY FINE. AN EXCEEDINGLY RARE EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT DELAWARE ACT OF JUNE 19, 1793 ISSUE. VERY FEW ARE KNOWN AND THIS IS WITHOUT QUESTION ONE OF THE FINEST.

The Scott Catalogue notes that in some cases a reddish ink was used in impressing the stamps, and sometimes they were impressed colorless. The State Revenue Society catalogue notes less than six of this 5c are known, but they do not note which have or do not have red ink. Examples with red ink were offered in the Sheldon (on small piece), Makepeace (on an unused writ of execution, offered in the following lot), Joyce (also an unused writ) and Tolman sales (on small piece, possibly the ex-Sheldon item). The example offered here, with just the embossing, is a major rarity and the only one without red ink we have encountered.

Cat No: RM291

image 5c Delaware (RM291; SRS DS3). Gorgeous impression with red ink on unissued New Castle County writ of execution dated November 2, 1793, on laid paper, sensibly reinforced along split at center well away from stamp, light waterstaining also well away from stamp

VERY FINE. AN EXCEEDINGLY RARE EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT DELAWARE ACT OF JUNE 19, 1793 ISSUE. VERY FEW ARE KNOWN AND THIS IS WITHOUT QUESTION ONE OF THE FINEST -- THE REDDISH INK MAKES THIS PERFECT STRIKE EASY TO SEE.

The Scott Catalogue notes that in some cases a reddish ink was used in impressing the stamps, and sometimes they were impressed colorless.. The State Revenue Society catalogue notes less than six are known of the 5c, but they do not indicate which have or do not have red ink. Examples with red ink were offered in the Sheldon (on small piece), Makepeace (on an unused writ of execution, offered here), Joyce (also an unused writ) and Tolman sales (on small piece, possibly the ex-Sheldon item).

Cat No: RM292

image 20c Delaware (RM292; SRS DS5). Colorless, detailed impression on inside of lease between Jesse Ford and John Spear for Duck Creek, dated January 13, 1794, on laid paper

VERY FINE. THE 20-CENT DELAWARE ACT OF JUNE 19, 1793 ISSUE IS ONE OF THE RAREST OF ALL EMBOSSED REVENUE STAMPS. ONE OF THE HIGHLIGHTS OF THE ANTIZZO COLLECTION.

The Scott Catalogue notes that in some cases a reddish ink was used in impressing the stamps, and sometimes they were impressed colorless. Only one 20c is recorded.

Ex Makepeace and Joyce. State Revenue Society catalogue value $10,000.00. We are unsure why this is valued less than Scott RM291, given the fact it is far rarer. (Image)
