Sale Number 1195, Lot Number 178, 1861-66 Issue Stamps, cont.24c Lilac (78), 24c Lilac (78)24c Lilac (78). Rich color, cancelled by bold strike of Waterbury Conn. Bridgeport Fireman fancy cancel, (Rohloff E-6), stamp with light creases

EXTREMELY FINE STRIKE OF THE FAMOUS BRIDGEPORT FIREMAN FANCY CANCELLATION, WHICH WAS CREATED IN WATERBURY BY POSTMASTER JOHN W. HILL. ITS USE ON A 24-CENT STAMP IS LIKELY UNIQUE.

This cancel was inspired by the annual Bridgeport Fireman's Parade through Waterbury. It is almost always seen on 3c stamps, though a few are known on 1c stamps or on a 3c entire. This use on a 24c stamp is truly remarkable -- we can only fantasize about what the cover must have looked like.

Ex Hessel and Jennings. With 1976 P.F. and 1994 P.S.E. certificates.

Sale Number 1180, Lot Number 127, 1861-66 Issue (Scott 63-78)24c Dark Lilac (78), 24c Dark Lilac (78)24c Dark Lilac (78). Original gum, well-centered, incredibly deep shade and sharp impression on bright fresh paper

EXTREMELY FINE. THE 24-CENT 1861-66 IS EXTREMELY RARE IN SOUND, WELL-CENTERED ORIGINAL-GUM CONDITION. THE SHADE AND IMPRESSION OF THIS STAMP ARE VERY RARELY ENCOUNTERED.

This stamp is the intense Dark Lilac shade. Every background line and detail of the lathework is printed with perfect clarity. The paper of is whiter, slightly thicker and more opaque -- it is similar to the paper on which the Blackish Violet (Scott 78c) is found -- and we suspect that the printings in this Dark Lilac shade and Blackish Violet shade occurred in close proximity, probably on similar paper stock.

The Scott value is based on a typical 24c stamp and does not begin to reflect the rarity of this stamp, in terms of its condition and depth of color.

With 1997 P.F. certificate

Sale Number 1180, Lot Number 128, 1861-66 Issue (Scott 63-78)24c Lilac (78), 24c Lilac (78)24c Lilac (78). Block of four, slightly disturbed original gum, choice centering, brilliant color and sharp proof-like impression, top left stamp small ink mark at center

FINE-VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE BLOCK OF THE 1862 24-CENT LILAC SHADE. THIS IS A DIFFICULT BLOCK TO FIND IN SUCH CHOICE CONDITION.

Original-gum blocks of the 24c 1861 are very scarce in choice condition. We have offered only three others since 2001, including two with perfs into the design and one with a pulled perf and diagonal crease. None was offered in our Whitman or Zoellner sales, probably because a block of suitable quality could not be found. This block is one of the nicest we have encountered.

With 2001 P.F. certificate
