VERY FINE AND CHOICE. A WONDERFUL EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT 1861 RE-ISSUE WITH ORIGINAL GUM.
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.
