Sale Number 1200, Lot Number 82, 1867-68 Grilled Issue (Scott 79-101), A choice original-gum block of four of the 15¢ E Grill, which is the largest unused multiple extant

DESCRIPTION

15¢ Black, E. Grill (91), block of four, original gum, deep shade and impression, strong grills, well-centered for this issue and very fresh

PROVENANCE

T. Charlton Henry, Harmer, Rooke sale, 12/14-16/1960, lot 296

Siegel Auction Galleries, 1981, 1985, 1989 and 1991 Rarities of the World sales

President's Sale, Ivy, Shreve & Mader, 12/4/1993, lot 286, to William H. Gross

HISTORY AND COMMENTARY

Our records contain only three or four other unused blocks of four of the 15¢ E Grill, and no larger multiples. The Zoellner block of four was broken into singles after the sale. This block is not from the Caspary block of eight, which went into the Phillips collection and was later divided into two blocks of four (and possibly further divided). The similarity in centering among the known blocks suggests they originated from one sheet. #

CERTIFICATION

The Philatelic Foundation (1994)
