Sale Number 1227, Lot Number 2307, 1861-66 Issue (Scott 56-78)30c Red Orange, First Color (61), 30c Red Orange, First Color (61)30c Red Orange, First Color (61). Part original gum called "small part" on most recent certificate, vibrant color, centered to right with perfs just touching, light diagonal crease at top right (a typical characteristic of the 30c First Color)

FINE EXAMPLE OF THE RARE 30-CENT 1861 FIRST COLOR.

Our census of Scott 61, available at https://siegelauctions.com/census/us/scott/61 , contains a total of 33 examples, including one in the Miller collection at The New York Public Library. Virtually all are centered to one side, and many are centered to two sides. A characteristic common to most examples of the 30c 1861 First Color is creasing, which in some cases is very severe and in others barely visible. Only six stamps with original gum are free of faults, and among those a few have a nibbed perf or two.

Census no. 61-OG-09. Ex Waterhouse, Crocker and "Ambassador" (Siegel Sale 300) and from our 1995 Rarities sale. With 1955 and 2008 P.F. certificates

Our census of Scott 61, available at https://siegelauctions.com/census/us/scott/61 , contains a total of 33 examples, including one in the Miller collection at The New York Public Library. Virtually all are centered to one side, and many are centered to two sides. A characteristic common to most examples of the 30c 1861 First Color is creasing, which in some cases is very severe and in others barely visible. This fresh example lacks the typical creasing. Only six stamps with original gum are free of faults, although a few have a nibbed perf or two. The example offered here, free from faults and with better centering than most, is highly desirable.
