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.
