Sale Number 957, Lot Number 175, Colombia 1859 First Issue 1859, 5c Blue (2), 1859, 5c Blue (2)1859, 5c Blue (2). Positions 3-4/14-15/23-26/34-37/45-48, block of 16 from the left side of Stone B, original gum, sheet margins on three sides, slightly in at right, usual gum creasing, thin spot breaks paper in one stamp at right, a few other tiny imperfections

VERY FINE. THIS IS THE LARGEST RECORDED BLOCK OF THE 5-CENTAVOS FIRST ISSUE IN THE BLUE SHADE. ONE LARGER BLOCK FROM STONE B IS KNOWN IN THE VIOLET BLUE SHADE.

When this block was part of the Larsen collection, the block of four at upper left, containing the inverted transfer Position 13, was still attached. It was cut out to be sold separately. The remaining block of sixteen is still the largest multiple in Blue, and, relative to all 5c multiples, it is second only to the block of 40 with the hole-punched Position 38 "50" error, which is the Blue Violet shade.

Ex Larsen (as a block of 20) and Londono (in its present form)
