5c Red Brown (28). Deep rich color in the 1858 shade -- we feel this should be catalogued as Deep Red Brown, as it is much closer to the Indian Red than it is to the 1856 Red Brown -- unusually choice centering with wide margins which are comfortably clear of the outer projections all around, unobtrusive town and double-circle datestamp cancels
EXTREMELY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 5-CENT RED BROWN. THIS ISSUE IS RARE WITH SUCH CHOICE CENTERING.
With 2013 P.S.E. certificate (XF 90; SMQ $3,300.00). Only seven have been graded higher
