Sale Number 1198, Lot Number 3020, Line Engraved IssuesGREAT BRITAIN, 1858, 2p Blue (SG Specialised G2; SG 45; Scott 29), GREAT BRITAIN, 1858, 2p Blue (SG Specialised G2; SG 45; Scott 29)GREAT BRITAIN, 1858, 2p Blue (SG Specialised G2; SG 45; Scott 29). Top left plate no. 9 corner selvage block of 24, watermark Ty. II, lettered A-A to D-F, with part inscription "PRICE 2d. Per Label. 2/- Per Row of 12. £1...Per Sheet. Place the Labels ABOVE the Address and towa(rds)" along top, most stamps appear Mint N.H. with the exception of three stamps at bottom lightly hinged, position D-C with small thin, some minor gum bends mostly in selvage

VERY FINE. AN EXCEPTIONAL SHOWPIECE BLOCK OF 24 OF THE 2-PENCE FROM PLATE 9. RARELY ENCOUNTERED IN A MULTIPLE OF THIS SIZE.

It is interesting to note the selvage inscription of this block for a price of the sheet versus the 1p stamp. The traditional form of currency was 12p per shilling and 20sh per pound, making 240 pence per pound. Sheet inscriptions on the 1p state a sheet cost £1 which is 240 stamps. On the 2p, which is shown here, a sheet costs £1 as well, which is 120 stamps. Therefore, the sheets were printed in the 240 stamp format and cut into two panes prior to having been sold at the post office.
