Sale Number 1186, Lot Number 676, 10c Rose Lithograph (Shades)10c Rose (5), 10c Rose (5)10c Rose (5). Horizontal block of ten, original gum, couple h.r., large to huge margins all around, bright color, few faults including small thins on several stamps -- more than acceptable condition for a block of this issue

EXTREMELY FINE APPEARANCE. A SPECTACULAR ORIGINAL-GUM BLOCK OF TEN OF THE 10-CENT ROSE LITHOGRAPH ISSUE -- THE LARGEST RECORDED MULTIPLE.

The rarity of this block of ten cannot be overstated. There exists a block of eight, without gum, and with large portions of two additional adjoining stamps (ex Murphy). It has faults which are more severe than on the block offered here. We sold a different block of eight in our 1982 Rarities sale, with original gum and two stamps cut-in at the right. This block of ten is the largest recorded multiple and has no equals.

Ex Weatherly (acquired by the Kilbournes privately in 1963). Illustrated in 1986 Dietz catalog (p. 152). Scott Retail $24,000.00 as two blocks of four
