Sale Number 1211, Lot Number 74, 1847 Issue—Florida and Territorial Usage, The only recorded example of the Little Miami Railroad "Sunburst" fancy cancellation on an 1847 Issue cover

5¢ Brown Orange (1d), horizontal pair, large margins to just in at left, brilliant shade from late printing, slight gum staining and small inclusion in left stamp, cancelled by two clear strikes of red Sunburst fancy cancel with matching "Little Miami R.R. Jun. 10" route agent's circular datestamp on envelope to Newtown, Pennsylvania, couple light gum residue spots on cover

Very Fine. This is the only recorded example of the Little Miami Railroad "Sunburst" fancy cancellation on the 1847 issue and is offered to the market for only the second time since its discovery in the early 2000s.

According to the Alexander book, two Little Miami Railroad route agents received 1,000 5¢ and 200 10¢ 1847 stamps. The Brown Orange shade of the pair on this cover indicates 1851 usage. There are six other Little Miami Railroad covers with 1847 stamps listed in the USPCS census, including four 5¢ covers (mailed between 1849 and 1850), the famous strip of five and single 10¢ on a legal-size cover (6/1/1851, ex Wyer) and a single 10¢ (3/16/18??). None of these has the Sunburst fancy cancel. According to Remele, the Little Miami Railroad was chartered in 1836 and completed between Cincinnati and Xenia in 1845. It was eventually incorporated into the Philadelphia railroad system.

Fancy "killer" cancels are extremely rare in the 1847-51 period. The term "killer" to describe the cancel was actually used by New York Postmaster Robert H. Morris. Although fancy rate markings from the pre-stamp era were used to cancel 1847 stamps, fancy cancels created for the specific purpose of "killing" stamps did not become popular until the 1850s. Fancy "killer" cancels on 1847s, such as the St. Johnsbury Scarab, Trenton Star and Binghamton Herringbone, have been known to collectors and highly prized for years. This Little Miami Railroad Sunburst, to the best of our knowledge, had not been recorded before the emergence of this cover from an estate in the early 2000s.

From our 2006 Rarities sale. With 2006 P.F. certificate.

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).

Sale Number 1150, Lot Number 522, 1847 Issue (Scott 1-2)5c Brown Orange (1d). Mint N.H, 5c Brown Orange (1d). Mint N.H5c Brown Orange (1d). Mint N.H., clear to full margins all around, bright and distinctive Brown Orange color, clear impression, fresh overall with immaculate full original gum

FINE. AN IMMENSELY RARE FIRST ISSUE STAMP STILL RETAINING ITS ORIGINAL GUM. THIS IS THE SOLE RECORDED NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT BROWN ORANGE 1847 ISSUE.

Of the five major listed shade varieties of the 5c 1847 Issue, other than the enormously rare Red Orange shade, the Brown Orange shade is the most challenging to find with original gum. This is underscored by the fact that the Scott Catalogue does not even price an example with original gum, plus a Power Search of our database reveals that we have never offered an original-gum example of the Brown Orange shade since we have been keeping computerized records. And to top it all off, this remarkable stamp is never hinged -- in itself a rarity among any and all shades of the 5c 1847 Issue. In fact, this is only the fourth never-hinged example of this stamp, in any shade, we have ever offered in our auctions.

With 2011 P.F. certificate.

Huge margins to full including part of adjoining stamp at bottom, cancelled by well-struck blue "PAID" handstamp and tied by matching "Mad Riv. & Lak. Erie R.R. May 16" route agent's circular datestamp on blue folded letter datelined "Dayton May 15, 1851" to Sandusky O.

EXTREMELY FINE. A MAGNIFICENT 1847 ISSUE COVER WITH THE 5-CENT BROWN ORANGE TIED BY THE MAD RIVER AND LAKE ERIE RAILROAD ROUTE AGENT'S DATESTAMP.

This railroad route ran from Sandusky to Bellefontaine, Ohio. In 1848 it was extended to Springfield. The trains ran six trips per week and connected with the Little Miami Railroad for Cincinnati via Xenia. There are perhaps a half-dozen examples of this marking known on the 1847 Issue, and this is most definitely the finest.

Ex Boker and Gross. With 2013 P.F. certificate
