Sale Number 1198, Lot Number 3014, Line Engraved IssuesGREAT BRITAIN, 1849, 2p Pale Blue (SG Specialised ES13; SG 13; Scott 4a), GREAT BRITAIN, 1849, 2p Pale Blue (SG Specialised ES13; SG 13; Scott 4a)GREAT BRITAIN, 1849, 2p Pale Blue (SG Specialised ES13; SG 13; Scott 4a). Block of 36, Plate 4, lettered L-D to O-L, original gum, couple h.r.'s, mostly large margins to touching in a few places at left and right, bright color, few creases and small faults such as light thin, small scissor cut at bottom and some gum staining, which should be expected on an early multiple of this size

FINE-VERY FINE. A SPECTACULAR LARGE MULTIPLE OF THE 1849 2-PENCE PALE BLUE FROM PLATE 4. THIS IS BELIEVED TO BE THE LARGEST UNUSED MULTIPLE IN PRIVATE HANDS.

Blocks of this issue in any size are rare, as evidenced by the large difference in the SG Specialised catalogue value for a block versus four singles. A review of major Great Britain collections containing early Line-Engraved multiples located blocks of four, six or even nine, but nothing of the magnitude of this block for any of the plates used for the White Lines Added issue.

Ex Adams, Griffiths and Baillie. SG as eight blocks of four and two pairs of the cheapest shade (Blue) is £436,000.
