Sale Number 1231, Lot Number 5, 1847 Issue and 1875 Reproduction (Scott 1-4)5c Red Brown (1), 5c Red Brown (1)5c Red Brown (1). Reconstructed block of six from vertical strips of Positions 79/89/99R1 and 80/90/100R1, containing Double Transfer Types A (Position 80) and B (Position 90), mostly large margins all around, rich Deep Red Brown color and impression from the First Printing, each with vivid red grid cancel, top two stamps faintly creased

THE UNIQUE “ASHBROOK RECONSTRUCTION”--A BLOCK OF SIX DIVIDED INTO TWO VERTICAL STRIPS AND REJOINED TO FORM ONE EXTREMELY FINE AND INCOMPARABLE SHOWPIECE.

The left strip was owned by Stanley B. Ashbrook. In 1918, while viewing the Judge Robert S. Emerson collection, he realized that a similar strip owned by the judge had once adjoined his own. The reconstructed block is illustrated in the Brookman book (Volume 1, page 43).

Vertical 5c 1847 strips are very rare, on or off cover. It is reported that only one other 5c multiple exists with both double transfers--a pair from Positions 80 and 90R--but the pair is cut into at bottom and right.

Ex Emerson, Ashbrook, Newbury, Dr. Morris, Mirsky and Middendorf. With 1980 Freidl and 1983 P.F. certificates. 1996 Calvet M. Hahn analysis accompanies.
