Sale Number 1187, Lot Number 80, 1857-60 Issue (Scott 18-39)5c Bright Red Brown (28b), 5c Bright Red Brown (28b)5c Bright Red Brown (28b). Unused (regummed), marvelous deep color, centered to left with perfs slightly into outer projection, few tiny perf flaws at bottom and lower right are not particularly noticeable

FINE APPEARANCE. AN EXTREMELY RARE UNUSED EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT 1857 BRIGHT RED BROWN SHADE.

This is only the second unused example of the sub-listed Bright Red Brown shade variety of Scott 28 we have offered. In our analysis of the 5c 1856-61 printings, we consider the Bright Red Brown (28b) and Indian Red (28A) to be in the same printing family. The Bright Red Brown shade is usually the default classification for a stamp that does not have sufficiently intense color to receive an Indian Red classification, but the difference is very subtle. In fact, unused examples of the Bright Red Brown (Scott 28b) shade appear to be rarer than the Indian Red.

With 2014 P.F. certificate
