Sale Number 1067, Lot Number 1002, 1861-66 Issue (Scott 61-70c)30c Red Orange, First Color (61), 30c Red Orange, First Color (61)30c Red Orange, First Color (61). Original gum, intense shade and impression, long and full perforations, certificate states tiny corner crease at top right (in our experience, most of the 1861 First Design/Color rarities have this kind of wrinkling, which was caused by gum)

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. AN EXCEEDINGLY RARE AND DESIRABLE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 30-CENT 1861 FIRST COLOR.

Our census of the 30c 1861 First Color, available at http://siegelauctions.com/dynamic/census/61/61.pdf , contains a total of 33 examples, including one in the Miller collection at The New York Public Library. A characteristic common to most examples of the 30c 1861 First Color is faint creasing, which in some cases is very severe and in others barely visible. Six stamps with original gum are free of faults, although a few have a trivial nibbed perf or two. All of the sound stamps are centered to one side (as are most of the others). The example offered here, with balanced margins and a tiny corner crease, is very desirable.

Census No. 61-OG-33. This is a newly-reported copy.

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1861 5-CENT BUFF STAMP IN TERMS OF COLOR, CENTERING, PERFORATIONS AND CANCELLATION. THIS STAMP, GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E., IS EASILY ONE OF THE FINEST IN EXISTENCE.

Due to narrow spacing on the 5c plate, it is very difficult to find centered copies with the perforations clear of the design on all sides. The stamp offered here, with its choice centering, fresh color and neat blue Baltimore cancel is a condition rarity.

Ex Mayer and Scarsdale. With 1996, 2003 P.F. and 2013 P.S.E. certificates (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $6,500.00). This is the highest grade awarded to a Scott 67 in any condition category and it is shared by only four others. At least three of the other 95's have black cancels

EXTREMELY FINE. A RARE EXAMPLE OF THE 1861 5-CENT IN THE DISTINCTIVE OLIVE YELLOW SHADE. THIS IS THE SCARCEST SHADE OF THE 5-CENT 1861 ISSUE, AND IT IS EXCEEDINGLY DIFFICULT TO FIND IN SUCH CHOICE CONDITION.

We have offered approximately a dozen unduplicated examples of the Olive Yellow shade in any condition since keeping computerized records. Of these two were unused. It is exceedingly difficult to find in sound and centered condition.
