EXTREMELY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL EXAMPLE OF THE 1858 BRIGHT RED BROWN SHADE OF THE 5-CENT TYPE I.
The 1858 Bright Red Brown is a much more vibrant color than the 1856 Red Brown or later Red Brown.
VERY FINE AND CHOICE. A REMARKABLY FRESH AND VIBRANT SHADE OF INDIAN RED, THE MOST DESIRABLE COLOR VARIETY OF THE 5-CENT 1857 ISSUE.
