VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT BUFF 1861 ISSUE.

Our sales during the past several years have contained a number of original-gum 1861-66 Issues, and we have made frequent reference to the rarity of these stamps in such choice condition. The 5c Brown Yellow and Buff are recognized as the rarest of 1861-66 Issue stamps in sound original-gum condition. Perhaps the only shade varieties rarer than the 5c Brown Yellow or Buff are the 3c Pigeon Blood Pink and 24c Blackish Violet (Scott 64a and 78c).

47 og 10c Yellow Green, TAG Double Transfer (68 var).> Original gum, deep shade on bright fresh paper, wide margins<><>^EXTREMELY FINE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 10-CENT 1861 ISSUE WITH DOUBLE TRANSFER. AN EXTREMELY
SCARCE STAMP IN THIS SUPERIOR GRADE10c Yellow Green, "TAG" Double Transfer (68 var). Original gum, deep shade on bright fresh paper, wide margins

EXTREMELY FINE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 10-CENT 1861 ISSUE WITH DOUBLE TRANSFER. AN EXTREMELY SCARCE STAMP IN THIS SUPERIOR GRADE.

The increased awareness of the rarity of 1847 to 1879 issues in superb original-gum condition has elevated many valuations for issues with modest Scott values. The 1861-66 issues are prime examples of this trend. This 10c 1861 has a Scott value of $1,200.00, yet one would be severely challenged to locate more than a few examples with original gum, choice centering and rich color.

Ex Hoffman. With 1994 P.F. certificate (not noting double transfer). Scott Retail as normal (Image)

EXTREMELY FINE. A REMARKABLY FRESH AND ATTRACTIVE EXAMPLE OF THE 3-CENT SCARLET TRIAL PRINTING.

As has been documented by Jerome S. Wagshal in a series of Chronicle articles (Nos. 56, 60, 61 and 62), Carl F. Rothfuchs, a Washington D.C. stamp dealer, obtained a supply of the 3c Scarlet in 1893 -- probably from the Post Office Department in exchange for his assistance with the Columbian Exposition -- and sold them with pen marks and original gum.
