Sale Number 1179, Lot Number 2131, 1857-60 Issue (Scott 18-39)5c Red Brown (28), 5c Red Brown (28)5c Red Brown (28). Original gum, deep rich color, centered to bottom right, light diagonal crease

FINE APPEARANCE. THE 1857 5-CENT RED BROWN IS AN EXTREMELY RARE STAMP WITH ORIGINAL GUM.

The perforated 5c Type I stamps in any shade of Red Brown are very rare in unused or original-gum condition. In the past 14 years we have offered over 200,000 auction lots. During that time, we have sold only five other Scott 28 singles with original gum and the block of four in the Whitman sale. Of the other singles, only two were completely sound (one from the Whitman collection, one in our 2014 Rarities sale). A search of the records at The Philatelic Foundation for sound copies found only these other two. In our opinion, the Scott Catalogue value for Scott 28 with original gum is too low. The number of original-gum Scott 28 singles falls somewhere between the numbers for the Brick Red (Scott 27) and the Indian Red (Scott 28A), which catalogue $80,000.00 and $175,000.00, respectively.

With 1975 P.F. certificate
