1854 Sitting Helvetia, thin paper, fine impression (Munich issue), emerald silk threads, 5 Rp orange brown, unused with original gum, h.r., margins all around except just touching frame line at top, nice color, fine and appealing example of this rare Strubel Issue, signed A.Brun, with 2001 Berra-Gautschy certificate (Zu.22Aa, SFr 8,300) (these stamps feature a seated figure of Helvetia wearing a laurel wreath. She holds a spear in her right arm, and her left arm is resting on a shield, emblazoned with the arms of the Helvetic Confederation. The effect given by the shape of the wreath around her embossed head caused many German speaking collectors to jokingly refer to the design as "Strubel", referring to the visual effect of Helvetia having "unkempt" or "frizzy" hair. The nickname for these issues stuck, and just about every collector of Swiss stamps now refers to them as "The Strubels")
