Sale Number 1228, Lot Number 136, Early Impressions-Deep Red Brown and Orange Brown, Arguably the finest known pair of the 5¢ 1847 First Printing Orange Brown shade

5¢ Orange Brown (1b), horizontal pair, huge margins all around including part of adjoining stamp at right, brilliant color and proof-like First Printing impression with every fine detail of the engraving, the Orange Brown color blends nicely with two perfectly-struck red grid cancellations of Savannah, Georgia

Extremely Fine Gem pair. In our opinion, this pair is the finest known multiple of the 1847 Orange Brown from the First Printing.

This pair presents an interesting contrast to the 1850 Orange Brown shade and cleaned-plate impression of the pair offered in this sale as lot 189. Although both are listed under Scott 1b, they are very different looking colors. We can envision a striking side-by-side mounting of these two superb pairs, showing the difference between the Orange Brown from two different printings.

Ex Philip T. Wall and John C. Chapin. With 1996 P.F. certificate. Scott value $2,000.00.
