5c-30c 1857-60 Issue (Scott 27-38)
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
1074   Image5c Brick Red (27). Brilliant color, beautiful centering with wide and balanced margins and with outer projections completely untouched by the perfs, well-struck "New Orleans La. May 19, 1859" circular datestamp

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 5-CENT BRICK RED. EASILY ONE OF THE FINEST EXAMPLES IN EXISTENCE -- THIS REMARKABLE STAMP IS GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E., WHICH IS THE HIGHEST AWARDED.

Ex "Tahoe" and Merlin. With 2011 P.S.E. certificate (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $14,500.00). This is the highest grade awarded and only five others share this grade. This is the first in this grade we have offered since 2013. (Image)

1075   Image5c Red Brown (28). Perfect centering with unusually wide and balanced margins, beautiful warm shade on bright paper, unobtrusive cancel

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A STUNNING USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 5-CENT RED BROWN, GRADED SUPERB 98 BY P.S.E. -- THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED AND IT IS SHARED BY ONLY ONE OTHER. THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT ISSUES TO OBTAIN WITH SUCH WIDE MARGINS AND IN SUCH PRISTINE CONDITION.

Due to the narrow spacing between stamps on the plate, the perforations often touch or go into the outer portion of the design on one or more sides. The example offered here, with perfect centering and deep rich color, is a true condition rarity.

Ex Kirke. With 2000 P.F. and 2010 P.S.E. certificates (Superb 98; SMQ $29,000.00). This is the highest grade awarded and only one other example has achieved this grade, a statistic that has not changed since 2010. (Image)

1077   Image5c Indian Red (28A). Gorgeous intense shade in the unmistakable true Indian Red color, toward the deeper end of the color spectrum, choice centering with perfs clear of outer projections on all sides, neat strike of New Orleans circular datestamp

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A BEAUTIFUL USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 5-CENT INDIAN RED, WITH STUNNING COLOR, FRESH PAPER AND LONG AND FULL PERFORATIONS ALL AROUND. A DIFFICULT STAMP TO FIND IN SUCH CHOICE CONDITION.

The deepest shade of Red Brown from the 1858 printing is known as Indian Red. It is found in a short spectrum of color, ranging from a dark purplish shade to a vivid "glowing" orange shade. To be classified as Indian Red, the stamp's impression must be strong throughout, especially in the area of the oval surrounding Jefferson's head. If a stamp possesses anything less than a very deep impression with the characteristic intense red shade, it will fall short of Indian Red, Scott 28A (and that is why Scott 28b was created as "second place").

Ex Merlin. With 2005 P.S.E. certificate (XF 90; SMQ $8,000.00). Only one has graded higher (at 95) and five others share this grade. This is the first in this grade we have offered since 2012. (Image)

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. AN OUTSTANDING USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1859 5-CENT TYPE I BROWN IN THE FINEST ATTAINABLE CONDITION. THIS STAMP IS GRADED SUPERB 98 BY P.S.E. -- THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED AND IT IS SHARED BY ONLY ONE OTHER.

Due to the narrow spacing, many examples have the outer projections touching or in to the perforations. The example offered here is a notable exception.

Ex Kirke and Curtis. With 2010 P.F. and 2007 P.S.E. certificates (Superb 98; SMQ $11,500.00). This is the highest grade awarded and only one other has achieved this desirable grade (Image)

1082   Image10c Green, Ty. I (31). Brilliant color and crisp impression on fresh paper, neat strike of San Francisco circular datestamp, beautiful centering with wide and balanced margins

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS MAGNIFICENT USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 10-CENT PERFORATED TYPE I IS GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E. -- THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED.

Type I stamps only come from the 20 positions that comprise the bottom row of the plate. Due to narrow spacing on the plate and difficulties in aligning the perforating machine, stamps at the bottom of the plate usually have perforations cutting into the bottom portion of the design. This is a negative, because Type I is defined as having the design complete at bottom. The population of stamps showing the characteristic is extremely limited, especially when other factors such as soundness are taken into consideration.

Ex Merlin. With 2007 P.S.E. certificate (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $12,500.00). This is the highest grade awarded and only five others share it, a statistic that has not changed since 2013. This is also the first in this grade we have offered since 2012. (Image)
