1849-52 Ceres 40c red-orange. VFU, 4 margins, diamond grid pmk. SG 15 cat £700, Maury 5/5b cat €750. Nice genuine example. (P)
 AVAILABLE at A$180
2311
1849-52 Ceres 1Fr bright orange-vermilion ('vermilion vif'). VFU with light rhombus grille cancel used in Paris, expertly repaired part of right margin (it is mentioned in certs but we definitely can not see it!), otherwise 4 neat margins, amazingly bright & fresh colour. The 1Fr vermilion was used only for couple of months & was then withdrawn due to constant confusion with the 40c orange. While there are a number of sub-shades of the 1Fr vermilion, the 'vermilion vif' is the most desirable as it was in fact this sub-shade that resulted in the 1Fr vermilion being withdrawn as it was the closest in appearance to the 40c. SG 16(var) cat £24,000++, Maury 7a, Yv 7a cat €26,500. Beautiful genuine example of the key classic stamp of France & especially desirable in such a bright shade. 1962 Roumet & 2016 Cerese/Loeuillet AIEP photo-certs. (P)
 SOLD at A$6000
