FRESH AND FINE EXAMPLE OF THE VERY SCARCE 3-CENT SCARLET TRIAL PRINTING.

As has been documented by Jerome S. Wagshal in a series of Chronicle articles (Nos. 56, 60, 61 and 62), Carl F. Rothfuchs, a Washington D.C. stamp dealer, obtained a supply of the 3c Scarlet in 1893 -- probably from the Post Office Department in exchange for his assistance with the Columbian Exposition -- and sold them with pen marks and original gum. The Rothfuchs lot is not from the same supply acquired by John W. Scott in the late 1870's, from which stamps exist uncancelled and cancelled with a New York City Station D oval.

With 2004 P.F. and 2018 P.S.E. certificates

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A STUNNING ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1863 5-CENT BROWN, GRADED XF-SUPERB 95. A DIFFICULT STAMP TO FIND IN SUCH SUPERB CONDITION -- THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED AND IT IS SHARED BY ONLY ONE OTHER.

The 5c 1861-68 Issue was printed from plates with closely-spaced subjects that left little room for the large 12-gauge perforations. The Brown shade, Scott 76, is scarce in original-gum condition, and truly rare in this high grade.

With 1995 P.F. and 2016 P.S.E. certificates (OGh, XF-Superb 95; SMQ $6,500.00). This is the highest grade awarded and it is shared by only one other, which we last offered in 2009.
