Starting bid: $500.00
Add Max Bid
Presented is a 1857, 5¢ red brown, type I (28) stamp featuring the portrait of Thomas Jefferson. It has beautiful red grid, bright vivid shade, wonderfully preserved color and paper and overall a good looking example of this elusive stamp.
A note on the shade: The Bright Red Brown shade is usually the default classification for a stamp that does not have sufficiently intense color to receive an Indian Red classification, but the difference is very subtle. In fact, unused examples of the Bright Red Brown (Scott 28b) shade appear to be rarer than the Indian Red. Many collectors know this issue by type and shade, but fewer are aware of the order of production (or release).
Assessed and certified by Professional Stamp Experts. They conclude: “it is genuine used, with a removed cancel, and small faults.”
