5c Indian Red (28A). Gorgeous intense shade in the unmistakable true Indian Red color, towards the deeper end of the color spectrum, choice centering with perfs clear of outer projections on all sides, neat strike of New Orleans circular datestamp EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A BEAUTIFUL USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 5-CENT INDIAN RED, WITH STUNNING COLOR, FRESH PAPER AND LONG AND FULL PERFORATIONS ALL AROUND. A DIFFICULT STAMP TO FIND IN SUCH CHOICE CONDITION. The deepest shade of Red Brown from the 1858 printing is known as Indian Red. It is found in a short spectrum of color, ranging from a dark purplish shade to a vivid “glowing” orange shade. To be classified as Indian Red, the stamp’s impression must be strong throughout, especially in the area of the oval surrounding Jefferson’s head. If a stamp possesses anything less than a very deep impression with the characteristic intense red shade, it will fall short of Indian Red, Scott 28A (and that is why Scott 28b was created as “second place”). With 2005 P.S.E. certificate (XF 90, SMQ value $8,100.00). Only one has graded higher and four others share this grade.
