EXTREMELY FINE APPEARANCE. THIS IS THE LARGEST RECORDED MULTIPLE OF THE ENTIRE PERU 1858 ISSUE. IT WAS THE FRONTISPIECE OF THE COLONEL JOHN F. RIDER COLLECTION SOLD BY ROBSON LOWE IN 1978 AND IS CONSIDERED TO BE ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT ITEMS OF PERUVIAN PHILATELY.
The 1858 One-dinero lithographic stone was made from multiple transfers of the 20-unit bloc report. The bloc report contained 19 different transfers. Position 16 was either blank on the original bloc report or the transfers on the printing stone were erased and replaced with different types from the bloc report. In this block we have parts of four different transfers of the bloc report. Type 10 was used to fill in Position 16 (top row, fifth stamp from left).
Ex Magonette, Rider and Bustamante.
