THIS IS THE LARGEST RECORDED MULTIPLE OF THE RARE 2-CENT GREEN LITHOGRAPH. IT IS THE FINER OF TWO KNOWN BLOCKS OF 24.

Noted Confederate Lithograph specialist Leonard Hartmann records the block of 24 from the Hall collection (Siegel Sale 840, lot 180) as the largest known multiple. It is also Extremely Fine appearing, with small faults. This block, which is the finer of the two blocks of 24, was off the market for more than 50 years before it was sold in Siegel's 2018 Kilbourne auction (Sale 1186, lot 661).

Ex Kilbourne. Scott value as six blocks of four
