Unused, current certificate states "traces of gum and small stain at top left removed", this statement is based on the previous certificate this stamp received in 1996 (#302935 - which no longer accompanies), the amount is gum on the stamp is far more than "traces", as it cover well over half the stamp, full margins to just touching at right

Sale Number 1150, Lot Number 567, 3c-5c 1851-56 Issue (Scott 11-12)5c Red Brown (12), 5c Red Brown (12)5c Red Brown (12). D Relief from either the fourth or eighth row of the plate, original gum, single hinge mark at bottom, large to huge margins all around including significant portion of the adjoining stamp at right, radiant color

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. EASILY ONE OF THE FINEST ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLES OF THE 5-CENT 1856 ISSUE. THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT FACE-DIFFERENT DESIGNS TO OBTAIN IN SUCH SUPERB CONDITION.

The 5c stamp was issued in 1856, five years after the 1c, 3c and 12c values and one year after the 10c were issued. It was typically used to pay the 5c shore-to-ship rate for mail sent overseas and also in multiples for the 10c transcontinental or 15c U.S.-French treaty rates.

With the exception of some rare types of the 1c and 10c, such as Scott Nos. 5 and 16, the 5c stamp is the most difficult denomination to obtain with four margins in sound and original-gum condition. As the stamp offered here demonstrates, the spacing between stamps was very narrow. We measured the gap between the stamp and the portion of the adjoining design, and the space is only 1.2 millimeter wide. This left little margin for error when separating the stamps, and it explains why so few examples are known with four margins. When other factors such as gum, color and impression are taken into consideration, the rarity and beauty of the stamp offered here may be fully appreciated.

Ex "Scarsdale". With 2000 and 2006 P.F. certificates.
