EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A STUNNING USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 5-CENT RED BROWN, GRADED SUPERB 98 BY P.S.E. -- THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED AND IT IS SHARED BY ONLY ONE OTHER. THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT ISSUES TO OBTAIN WITH SUCH WIDE MARGINS AND IN SUCH PRISTINE CONDITION.

Due to the narrow spacing between stamps on the plate, the perforations often touch or go into the outer portion of the design on one or more sides. The example offered here, with perfect centering and deep rich color, is a true condition rarity.

Ex Kirke. With 2000 P.F. and 2010 P.S.E. certificates (Superb 98; SMQ $27,500.00). This is the highest grade awarded and only one other example has achieved this grade, a statistic that has not changed since 2010.

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E., THIS STAMP COMBINES THE THREE C's -- CENTERING, COLOR AND CANCEL -- IN A WAY THAT FEW OTHER 5-CENT 1857 ISSUES IN ANY SHADE COULD MATCH.

Due to the narrow spacing between stamps on the 5c plate, the perforations often touch or go into the outer portion of the design on one or more sides. The example offered here, with choice centering, deep rich color and both red and ultramarine cancels, is a true condition rarity.

With 2004 and 2011 P.F. certificates. With 2006 P.S.E. certificate (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $9,850.00 for normal cancel). The P.S.E. Population Report records seven stamps at the highest grades for Scott No. 28. There are five graded 95 and two graded 98. We have offered two of the other 95s and one of the 98s and all have black cancels. While not the highest graded stamp of the issue, one would be hard pressed to improve upon this Gem when considering the cancels
