    It's unlikely to be a reprint, since the color of the reprint is listed as "scarlet". It is most likely a Scott 65 which has some red and brown shades associated with it. Color typing is very difficult with this early issue since it very often oxidizes to a more "brown" shade from sunlight and chemical exposure.
