EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS SUPERB ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT 1861 RE-ISSUE HAS BEEN AWARDED THE GRADE XF-SUPERB 95 JUMBO BY P.S.E. -- THIS IS THE ONLY EXAMPLE TO ACHIEVE THIS DESIRABLE GRADE.

The 5c Re-Issue was printed from a new plate of 100 subjects, compared to the original plate of 200 in two panes. The Re-Issue plate can be identified by a notch at bottom. 10,000 stamps were printed (100 impressions). Only 672 of the 5c were sold; the remaining 9,328 were destroyed on July 16, 1884.

With 2001 and 2005 P.S.E. certificates (OG, XF-Superb 95 Jumbo; SMQ $13,000.00). This stamp was graded before P.S.E. started breaking out OGph vs. OGh. While the gum is intact and quite typical for the 1861 Re-Issues, we feel it would be graded OGh, XF-Superb 95 Jumbo if submitted today. This is the highest graded example in the P.S.E. Population Report and no others share this grade
