Sale Number 1198, Lot Number 3057, Surface Printed Issues, 1855-80GREAT BRITAIN, 1867, 2sh Dull Blue (SG Specialised J118(1); SG 118; Scott 55), GREAT BRITAIN, 1867, 2sh Dull Blue (SG Specialised J118(1); SG 118; Scott 55)GREAT BRITAIN, 1867, 2sh Dull Blue (SG Specialised J118(1); SG 118; Scott 55). Block of four with part inscription "POSTAGE TW(O)" at bottom and wing margin at left, Plate 1, lettered S-E to T-F, original gum, fresh pastel shade with a sharp impression, light traces of a couple gum wrinkles

FINE AND IMMENSELY RARE UNUSED BLOCK OF THE 2-SHILLING DULL BLUE, PLATE 1. AN UNDER-APPRECIATED RARITY AS A MULTIPLE AND MISSING FROM EVEN THE MOST ADVANCED COLLECTIONS.

After an exhaustive review of numerous name auction sales in which singles and even used blocks show up with frequency, unused blocks (or even pairs) of this issue are rarely encountered. We are aware of only one larger multiple, a corner selvage block of six (ex Latto), although the block offered here is in arguably better condition and nicer appearance.

Ex Baillie. SG £20,000.
