Sale Number 1234, Lot Number 87, 1861-66 Issue (Scott 56-78)5c Buff (67), 5c Buff (67)5c Buff (67). Original gum, deep rich color on bright paper, well-centered and completely sound

VERY FINE AND CHOICE. AN EXTREMELY RARE SOUND AND CENTERED ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1861 5-CENT BUFF.

The 5c Buff and its shade varieties (Brown Yellow and Olive Yellow) are recognized as being among the rarest of 1861-66 Issue stamps in sound original-gum condition. Perhaps the only shade varieties rarer than the 5c Buff are the 3c Pigeon Blood Pink and 24c Blackish Violet (Scott 64a and 78c), but Scott 67 is a major listing and is, therefore, more significant to completion of the series. This example in sound condition and with choice centering is a rarity among rarities.

Ex Sheriff. With 1986 P.F. (as 67a, in error) and 2007 P.S.E. certificates (OGph, VF-XF 85; SMQ $50,000.00). Only two original-gum examples of any of the 5c Buff shades (67, 67a and 67b) have even been submitted to P.S.E. for grading, both in the main Scott 67 shade. This is the highest graded example, with the other example graded 60. No unused examples are graded by the P.F.

Sale Number 1180, Lot Number 112, 1861-66 Issue (Scott 63-78)5c Buff (67), 5c Buff (67)5c Buff (67). Original gum, lightly hinged, beautiful brilliant shade and impression on bright paper, a very early printing with fine detail of background and lathework clearly visible

FRESH AND VERY FINE. THE BUFF AND BROWN YELLOW SHADES OF THE 5-CENT 1861 ISSUE ARE THE EARLIEST PRINTINGS AND THE MOST CHALLENGING TO OBTAIN IN SOUND, ORIGINAL-GUM CONDITION -- IT IS UNLIKELY THAT MORE THAN A DOZEN EXAMPLES EXIST AS SUCH. THIS STAMP -- WITH ITS LIGHTLY HINGED ORIGINAL GUM AND BRILLIANT COLOR -- IS AMONG THE MOST ATTRACTIVE WE HAVE EVER ENCOUNTERED.

The 5c Buff and its shade varieties (Brown Yellow and Olive Yellow) are recognized as being among the rarest of 1861-66 Issue stamps in sound original-gum condition. Perhaps the only shade varieties rarer than the 5c Buff are the 3c Pigeon Blood Pink and 24c Blackish Violet (Scott 64a and 78c), but Scott 67 is a major Scott listing and is, therefore, more significant to completion of the series.

A review using Power Search supports our claim. The last sound, original-gum example we offered was in our 2015 "European Connoisseur's" Collection, which realized $50,000 hammer. The example in our 2009 Alan Whitman sale realized $70,000 hammer. Those were the only two sound copies with original gum we have offered since 2007.

EXTREMELY FINE. THE BUFF AND BROWN YELLOW SHADES OF THE 5-CENT 1861 ISSUE ARE THE EARLIEST PRINTINGS AND THE MOST CHALLENGING TO OBTAIN IN SOUND, ORIGINAL-GUM CONDITION. THIS STAMP, WHICH WAS CASPARY'S ONLY SOUND EXAMPLE, IS ARGUABLY THE FINEST COPY IN EXISTENCE. COLLECTORS WHO HAVE PURSUED THIS RARITY WITHOUT SUCCESS COULD WELL DRIVE THE REALIZATION INTO RECORD-SETTING TERRITORY.

The 5c Buff and its shade varieties (Brown Yellow and Olive Yellow) are recognized as being among the rarest of 1861-66 Issue stamps in sound original-gum condition. Perhaps the only shade varieties rarer than the 5c Buff are the 3c Pigeon Blood Pink and 24c Blackish Violet (Scott 64a and 78c), but Scott 67 is a major Scott listing and is, therefore, more significant to completion of the series.

A review using Power Search supports our claim. The last sound, original-gum example we offered was in our sale of the Alan B. Whitman collection, and that stamp realized $70,000 hammer. This example is better centered and fresher than the Whitman copy, and it has been sheltered from exposure to light and the elements since the European Connoisseur acquired it in the Caspary sale in 1956. He paid $1,250 in that auction, at a time when the stamp's Scott value was $350.

Ex Caspary. With 2015 P.F. certificate
