A RARE AND AFFORDABLE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1858 5-CENT BRICK RED.

After surveying dozens of classic United States sale catalogues, we found approximately 25 examples of Scott 27 with original gum, allowing for duplicate offerings and excluding the one known original-gum block. Of the stamps we counted, about half had perfs touching on two sides or were deeply cut into on one side. Almost two-thirds had stains or faults. This is a presentable example of this rare stamp.

With 2017 P.F. certificate. Scott value $80,000.00
