Sale Number 1225, Lot Number 212, Lithographed Issues (Scott 3-4)5c Blue, Stone 2 (4), 5c Blue, Stone 2 (4)5c Blue, Stone 2 (4). Pane of 200 (less three stamps) with vertical gutter between, Positions 3-5 removed from left pane, over 160 stamps Mint N.H., original gum applied by brush, heavy brown gum toning on left pane, thins in top left corner block of four, two stamps with small holes, two vertical creases thru one row in each pane, many stamps with small stains

FINE-VERY FINE. THIS REMARKABLE SHEET IS THE LARGEST KNOWN MULTIPLE OF THE 1862 5-CENT BLUE LITHOGRAPH AND, IN FACT, STANDS AS THE LARGEST SURVIVING MULTIPLE OF ANY CONFEDERATE LITHOGRAPHED GENERAL ISSUE.

The Confederate Lithograph Issues (Scott 1-5) were produced from printing stones of 200 subjects, arranged in side-by-side panes of 100, with a vertical gutter between. Each of the left and right panes of 100 consisted of two transfers of the 50-subject transfer stone. Multiples crossing the vertical gutter that separated the left and right transfer units are rare, as the sheet of 200 was typically separated into panes of 100 before individual stamps or blocks were cut out. This unique artifact of Confederate philately wonderfully demonstrates the layout of the printing stone. This sheet was purchased by John R. Hill Jr. from Raymond and Roger Weill in 1987. The Weill's had purchased it from Philip Ward in 1963. It is also ex Walcott (lot 321).

Scott value as gutter pairs, blocks of four, pairs and one single

Sale Number 1186, Lot Number 669, 5c Blue Lithograph5c Blue, Stone 2 (4), 5c Blue, Stone 2 (4)5c Blue, Stone 2 (4). Block of 62 crossing all four transfers of the 50-subject transfer stone, 49 positions from Stone 2 are present (missing only Position 47), the following positions are included in the block: upper left Positions 38-40/48-50; lower left Positions 6-10/36-40; upper right Positions 31-36/41-46; lower right Positions 1-6/31-36, also showing all stone varieties including major and minor clipped transfers at upper right, brownish original gum which soaks through to front in a few places, usual gum creases but not folded like many large multiples

VERY FINE AND RARE LARGE MULTIPLE OF THE 5-CENT BLUE LITHOGRAPH FROM STONE 2, CROSSING ALL FOUR TRANSFERS ON THE 200-SUBJECT PRINTING STONE.

This is a very rare block showing portions of all four 50-subject Stone 2 transfers on the 200-subject printing stone. The layout includes every position from Stone 2 except Position 47, as well as the gutter positions. The iconic complete sheet of 200 (less three stamps) is the most recognizable artifact from Stone 2, but this block is extraordinary in its own right. Other than the complete sheet this is the only multiple we have encountered which includes portions of all four transfers.

Scott Retail $23,675.00 as blocks, pairs and wide-spaced gutter pairs without premium for the varieties or the narrow spaced gutter pairs (which are listed but unpriced in Scott)
