HISTORY AND COMMENTARY

The Chapin census lists just this plate block for Scott 146, plus a block of four showing the plate number only (no imprint). The Luff book notes that 234,091,350 2¢ 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.
