Sale 1096, Lot 149, 1861-66 Issue, cont. (Scott 69-78c)5c Brown (76). Original gum, lightly hinged, rich color and detailed impression

EXTREMELY FINE. A BEAUTIFULLY CENTERED AND UNUSUALLY FRESH ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1863 5-CENT BROWN.

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 quality.

With 1986 P.F. certificate
