Sale Number 992, Lot Number 2087, 3c-5c 1857-60 Issue (Scott 25-30A)5c Bright Red Brown (28b), 5c Bright Red Brown (28b)5c Bright Red Brown (28b). Essentially perfectly centered, outstanding deep rich color in 1858 shade, crisp bright white paper, neat New Orleans circular datestamp with a dark red octagonal foreign transit at bottom right

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. AN OUTSTANDING EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 5-CENT BRIGHT RED BROWN WITH INTENSE COLOR AND EXTRAORDINARY CENTERING.

This stamp is, in our opinion, further evidence that the 1858 5c printing produced the deeper shades of Red Brown, Bright Red Brown and Indian Red (and probably the Brick Red as a mistake in ink mixture).

With 2010 P.F. certificate (XF-Superb 95)
