Sale Number 1221, Lot Number 1458, 1904 Louisiana Purchase Issue (Scott 323-327)2c Louisiana Purchase, Vertical Pair, Imperforate Horizontally (324a), 2c Louisiana Purchase, Vertical Pair, Imperforate Horizontally (324a)2c Louisiana Purchase, Vertical Pair, Imperforate Horizontally (324a). Original gum with slight disturbance from hinge removal, brilliant color, wide margins, bottom stamp light natural gum bend as almost always seen on this error

VERY FINE EXAMPLE OF THE RARE 2-CENT LOUISIANA PURCHASE IMPERFORATE HORIZONTALLY. ONLY 25 ERROR PAIRS CAN EXIST FROM THE DISCOVERY PANE OF 50.

It is well-established that only one pane of 50 of this commemorative error was discovered. It was purchased as a new issue at the post office in Cleveland, Ohio, by A. W. Weigel of the Ohio Stamp Company. Very shortly thereafter, the pane, or at least a large part of it, became part of the George H. Worthington collection. The pane had been divided prior to the Worthington sale, to allow multiple collectors to obtain an example of the variety. In the Worthington auction, 26 of the 50 stamps were offered; the remaining 24 stamps were sold privately. In our reconstruction of the pane, this pair comes from Positions 13/18.

FINE AND RARE EXAMPLE OF THE 2-CENT LOUISIANA PURCHASE IMPERFORATE HORIZONTALLY.

It is believed that only one pane of 50 was found in Cleveland Ohio. This intact pane was originally sold to A.W. Weigel of the Ohio Stamp Co. and very shortly thereafter became part of the George H. Worthington collection. After the Worthington sale it was broken into pairs and blocks of four, including the unique plate block offered in our sale of the William H. Gross Multiples Collection (Sale 1200, lot 193). Power Search lists very few of these rarities -- we have offered only a handful of others since 1990.

With 2017 P.F. certificate (F 70)
