Sale Number 1219, Lot Number 114, 5c 1857-60 Issue (Scott 27-30A)5c Bright Red Brown (28b), 5c Bright Red Brown (28b)5c Bright Red Brown (28b). Choice centering, outstanding deep rich color in the 1858 shade -- despite Bright Red Brown color classification on accompanying certificate, this is obviously an Indian Red -- lightly struck circular datestamp cancel

EXTREMELY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL 5-CENT TYPE I PERFORATED STAMP FROM THE 1858 PRINTING IN AN INTENSE RED BROWN SHADE WITH INCREDIBLE DEPTH OF IMPRESSION AND CHOICE CENTERING.

This stamp comes from the 1858 5c printing, which produced the deeper shades of Red Brown, Bright Red Brown and Indian Red (and probably the Brick Red as a mistake in ink mixture). We have no doubt this is Indian Red (Scott 28A), but the P.S.E. certified it as the Bright Red Brown shade (Scott 28b).

With 2015 P.S.E. certificate (XF 90; SMQ $5,750.00). Only one stamp equals this grade and one grades higher (at 95, offered in our 2012 sale of the Kirke collection)
