Margins to just in, intense shade on deeply blued paper, clear New Orleans circular datestamp, small thin spots and small repair

FINE APPEARANCE. ONLY THREE OF THE SIX RECORDED EXAMPLES OF THE NEW ORLEANS 5-CENT RED ERROR ARE PRINTED ON BLUISH PAPER. ONE OF THE RAREST CONFEDERATE POSTMASTERS' PROVISIONALS AND THE ONLY COLOR ERROR IN CONFEDERATE PHILATELY.

Because the 5c Red error is found on two separate papers in such small numbers -- with at least two of the copies showing a few traces of the normal brown color -- Dr. Skinner theorizes that either "too much red ink was introduced onto the platen in blending the brown ink or the components of the ink separated while the press was idle for a time." This, he speculates, "produced a mottled impression on a very few sheets" and "would have been corrected as soon as the rollers passed across the platen a few times re-mixing or blending the ink."

Our records contain the following examples of the 5c Red error: White Paper (62X6): 1) unused with traces of gum, ex Hind, Brooks; 2) "DUE" straightline cancel, partly rebacked over thins, ex Caspary, Lilly and Kilbourne; 3) cut in at bottom, tied by "Paid" straightline on part of cover to Mrs. Wm. Reynauld, Baton Rouge, photo by Hiram Deats in P.F. files; Blue Paper (62X7): 4) Dec. 4 circular datestamp, thin spots and small repair, ex Crocker, the example offered here; 5) Sep. 17 circular datestamp, small faults, ex Ferrary, Hind, and Lilly, 6) Position 1, "Paid" and part datestamp, thinned with small nicks at left, ex Caspary and Skinner (offered in Siegel Sale 832, lot 3154, realized $6,000 hammer). The Crown book lists only four examples on either paper (Nos. 3 and 4 above omitted). Dr. Skinner's 1978 Congress Book article notes only five examples on either paper (probably omitting No. 4). Based on our census, there is only one possible sound example of this rarity -- the ex Hind/Brooks unused stamp -- but that stamp has not been offered since the 1943 Laurence & Stryker sale of the Brooks collection.

Ex Crocker. With 1989 P.F. certificate
