EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT 1847 ISSUE IN THE DISTINCTIVE AND DESIRABLE RED ORANGE SHADE. THIS SPECTACULAR STAMP IS GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E. -- THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED AND IT IS SHARED BY ONLY ONE OTHER.

According to a series of articles by the late Calvet M. Hahn in the Collectors Club Philatelist, the Red Orange shade was printed some time during the fourth and last printing, which took place in December 1850. Research by Wade Saadi indicates the Red Orange shade was produced exclusively during the last printing, stamps from which were part of the Fifth Delivery (December 7, 1850).

The stamp offered here was part of an important West Coast collection built before World War II. It was acquired privately by "Argentum" (Dr. J. A. Graves) through Raymond Weill and later sold by the Siegel firm as part of the "Argentum" collection (Sale 807) to John C. Chapin. Because this stamp was hidden in an album for nearly 50 years, its color is much stronger than that of most Red Orange examples seen today.

Ex "Argentum", Chapin and Kirke. With 1994, 2005 and 2013 P.F. certificates (XF-Superb 95). With 2005 P.S.E. certificate (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $30,000.00). Only one other shares this grade, which is the highest awarded. The other example was offered in our sale of the "Natalee Grace" collection (Image)

1010   Image5c Brown Orange (1d). Huge margins all around, gorgeous unmistakable Brown Orange color on deeply blued paper, light unobtrusive red grid cancel

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. AN ABSOLUTELY SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT 1847 ISSUE IN THE ELUSIVE BROWN ORANGE SHADE, GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E. -- THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED AND IT IS SHARED BY ONLY TWO OTHERS.

This XF-Superb 95 grade is the highest awarded by P.S.E., and only three have achieved it. As an indication of the 5c 1847 Brown Orange shade's rarity in superb quality, it is revealing to note that the much higher cataloguing 5c 1847 Red Orange shade (1c) is listed in the P.S.E. Population Report with two in the grade of 95, just one less than the number of Brown Orange in 95.

With 2013 P.F. and P.S.E. certificates (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $4,500.00). (Image)
