EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB LIGHTLY-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT TYPE II 1860 ISSUE. THIS STAMP IS GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 -- ONLY ONE HAS GRADED HIGHER AND ONLY ONE SHARES THIS DESIRABLE GRADE.

Unlike its Orange Brown counterpart, the 5c Type II in Brown was not on hand in post offices when the 1861 demonetization order took effect. Therefore, original-gum examples of Scott 30A are far scarcer than Scott 30. The narrow spacing between subjects on the plate, as well as Toppan Carpenter's imprecise perforating, leaves collectors with very few well-centered original-gum examples.

With 1996 P.F. and 2005 and 2016 P.S.E. certificates (OGph, XF-Superb 95; SMQ $11,500.00). Only one unused stamp in any gum condition has graded higher -- a single original gum example at 95J last sold by us in 2007. One other shares this grade -- it just brought $12,500 hammer in our 2018 Rarities sale.

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A SCARCE USED EXAMPLE OF THE SHORT-LIVED 90-CENT 1860 ISSUE.

The 90c stamp was issued in 1860, along with the 24c and 30c values, all of which were needed to prepay high international letter rates established by various postal treaties. The basic 24c and 30c rates to England, France and Germany created a volume of mail franked with those values. However, the 90c saw much more limited use, partly due to the rates in effect, but more because of the American Civil War. When supplies of current postage stamps were declared invalid in the South and ultimately demonetized by the Federal government, the 90c had been in use for only one year. For this reason, genuinely cancelled copies are scarce, and covers bearing the 90c are extremely rare.

Approximately 180 used examples have been certified by The Philatelic Foundation, of which only one-quarter are sound.

With 2016 P.S.E. certificate
