John C. Chapin (collection sold privately to Mr. Gross through Shreves, 2002)

CENSUS

Chapin census no. 374

CONDITION NOTES

Very Fine-Extremely Fine

SCOTT CATALOGUE VALUE (2019)

$4,600.00 as plate block of ten and two pairs

HISTORY AND COMMENTARY

The Chapin census lists three plate blocks for Scott 147, plus one plate block in imperforate form. A bottom plate block from Plate 44 was offered in the Moody, Todd and Wampler sales. A plate block of 14 from the top left corner of Plate 7 was offered in a 3/31/1947 Harmer sale, but it was not illustrated and we have no other information. The third is offered here. This is an extremely small survival rate, considering that 1.2 billion 3¢ stamps, or 6 million sheets, were distributed to postmasters between September 30, 1870, and June 30, 1873.
