FINE AND RARE COMBINATION OF THE 10-CENT CARMINE AND 5-CENT DE LA RUE ON AN ADVERSITY COVER. AN OUTSTANDING EXHIBITION ITEM.

This cover is signed by Dietz and was part of the Storrow collection (acquired by Col. Green and sold as part of the Green estate). It was also part of the Robert Wiseman and Jack Solomon Confederate collections. Throughout this period of ownership it was always classified as a true Carmine. After the Solomon sale, the Philatelic Foundation rendered an opinion that the 10c stamp is the Rose Carmine shade (not Scott 5a, but a variation of Scott 5). We respectfully disagree with the P.F. on this color classification. A supply of Carmine stamps is known to have reached Knoxville, Tennessee, in July 1862, as evidenced by two of the indisputed Carmine covers (see 1983 Rarities sale, lots 410 and 411). It is generally accepted that the Carmine color comes in a range of shades from a dull or dark Carmine to an intense shade with an almost wax-like impression. This variation resulted from inconsistent ink mixtures, but the Carmine can be distinguished from the Deep Rose and Rose Carmine shades of Scott 5 by its richness and heavy red saturation.

Offered as a Scott 5a, subject to re-certification by the Philatelic Foundation
