Sale 1078, Lot 42, 5c 1847 Issue (Scott 1-1d)5c Red Orange (1c). Large margins, radiant color nicely complemented by blue circular datestamp of Philadelphia

EXTREMELY FINE USED EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT 1847 ISSUE IN THE DISTINCTIVE AND DESIRABLE RED ORANGE SHADE.

According to a series of articles by the late Calvet M. Hahn in the Collectors Club Philatelist, the Red Orange shade was printed some time during the fourth and last printing, which took place in December 1850. Research by Wade Saadi indicates the Red Orange shade was produced exclusively during the last printing, stamps from which were part of the Fifth Delivery (December 7, 1850).

With 2014 P.S.E. certificate (XF 90; SMQ $15,000.00). Accompanied by letter from Ezra D. Cole dated Feb. 4, 1949, discussing how he just purchased this item at a Harmer Rooke sale (lot card also accompanies) and stating that "this is the true orange color, and it is much rarer than anyone realizes"
