Sale Number 941, Lot Number 1001, 1847 Issue5c Dark Brown (1a), 5c Dark Brown (1a)5c Dark Brown (1a). Original gum, large margins all around, deep rich color and sharp proof-like impression

VERY FINE AND CHOICE. A BEAUTIFUL SOUND ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT 1847 ISSUE IN THE DISTINCTIVE DARK BROWN SHADE.

With 2007 P.S.E. certificate (VF 80; SMQ $8,000.00). In our opinion this stamp has margins that are identical to the P.S.E.'s published standard for VF-XF 85. Given its freshness and quality, we think it should have earned an 85 grade. However, it is still the only graded original-gum example of the Dark Brown shade in the P.S.E. Population Report.
