EXTREMELY FINE USED EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT TYPE II ORANGE BROWN WITH A VIVID RED CANCEL.

The 5c Orange Brown is scarcer used than unused, due to its short life while it was valid for postage and the recovery of stocks of unused stamps from southern post offices after the Civil War. Examples in this choice sound used condition are rare. This stamp is remarkably fresh from a new find in Europe.

With 2021 P.S.E. certificate (XF 90; SMQ $3,300.00). Only four examples grade higher (at 95) and only three others share this grade

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1861 5-CENT ORANGE BROWN WITH A VIVID RED CANCEL, GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E. -- THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED.

5c stamps in the Orange Brown shade (Scott 30) were printed from Plate 2 in 1861 (EDU is May 8). They were the last stamps of the 1857 Issue distributed before the U.S. Post Office Department demonetized all circulating stamps in August 1861, in order to prevent their use in the seceded states. Given the short period of time they could be used, the 5c Orange Brown (like the 90c) is very scarce in used condition. It is much more plentiful in unused condition due to leftover supplies found in Southern post offices after the Civil War.

Ex Lewis Hall. With 2001 P.F. and 2012 P.S.E. certificates (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $10,000.00). This is the highest grade awarded and it is shared by only three others
