HISTORY AND COMMENTARY

The Chapin census lists only two full plate blocks for Scott 145. The other is in the Miller collection, owned by The New York Public Library. The Luff book notes that 146,668,600 1¢ stamps were distributed to post offices between September 1870 and June 1873. This includes the grilled issue. Despite the large quantity issued and low denomination, plate blocks or other multiples are rare.
