Sale Number 1096, Lot Number 132, 1861-66 Issue (Scott 63-68)10c Yellow Green (68), 10c Yellow Green (68)10c Yellow Green (68). Block of four, original gum, lightly hinged, beautifully centered, intense shade and impression, few perf separations expertly reinforced, small corner crease at bottom left

VERY FINE. A SCARCE ORIGINAL-GUM BLOCK OF FOUR OF THE 10-CENT 1861 ISSUE.

A Power Search review indicates this is the first original-gum block we have offered in one of our auctions since 1996. Ishikawa had a block of four, heavily reinforced and with perfs cutting into the design. Sinkler had a block of four with similar centering to the one offered here, as did Caspary (offered in our Sale 775 in 1996). One other was offered in our Sale 756 (in 1993) with perfs into the design at top. Klein had a block of six, without gum. Blocks have been missing from most major collections, including Zoellner and Eno and Whitman.

With 1995 P.S.E. certificate. Undercatalogued in Scott, probably since none have been offered in recent memory to serve as basis for adjusting catalogue value.
