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.
