EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SPECTACULAR EXAMPLE OF THE PERFORATED 1857 ONE-CENT TYPE I -- PERFORATED TYPE I STAMPS ONLY COME FROM THE TIGHTLY-SPACED PLATE 12 AND ARE VERY RARELY ENCOUNTERED WITH PERFORATIONS CLEAR OF THE ENTIRE DESIGN.

The 1c Type I perforated is a notoriously difficult stamp to find well-centered and with perfs that do not cut off parts of the design. The Type I shows the completed design at both top and bottom, and as the spacing on the plate was narrow and perforating of stamps during this time period was generally poor, most examples do not show the full defining characteristics of the type. The example offered here, showing the full ornamentation at top and bottom is a condition rarity.

With 2011 P.S.E. certificate (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $5,900.00). This is the highest grade awarded to date and one of only six 95's in the P.S.E. Population Report

Sale Number 1019, Lot Number 372, 1c-5c 1857-60 Issue (Scott 18-30)5c Brick Red (27), 5c Brick Red (27)5c Brick Red (27). Radiant color, wonderfully well-centered with wide margins, perfs well clear of outer projections on all sides, face-free grid cancel at top

EXTREMELY FINE USED EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT 1857 ISSUE IN THE DISTINCTIVE BRICK RED COLOR. ONE OF THE FINEST USED EXAMPLES OF THIS STAMP IN EXISTENCE.

The distinctive Brick Red color is unlike any of the 5c 1856-61 shades and was probably an ink mixture anomaly in the first printing of 1858 when the rich Red Brown stamps with perforations were produced. Stamps printed in Brick Red were not released until later, which gives them an October 1858 earliest documented use date. They are notoriously difficult to find in sound, centered and lightly-cancelled condition, the three virtues possessed by this stamp.

With 2003 P.F. and 2006 P.S.E. certificates (XF 90; SMQ $4,250.00). Only four have graded higher to date, all at 95
