Sale Number 1021, Lot Number 153, 1c-3c 1857-60 Issue (Scott 18-26)1c Blue, Ty. II (20), 1c Blue, Ty. II (20)1c Blue, Ty. II (20). Plate 2, block of four, original gum, small h.r., intense shade and impression, choice centering for this difficult issue, top left stamp short perf at top left and tear at top, left stamps light vertical crease

VERY FINE-EXTREMELY FINE. A MAGNIFICENT BLOCK OF THE 1857 ONE-CENT PERFORATED ISSUE FROM PLATE TWO. ONE OF THE FINEST EXTANT MULTIPLES FROM THIS PLATE.

Based on the centering and shade, we believe this block comes from a large multiple that contained the block of 30 from Positions 52-57/92-97R2 and the block of 9 from Positions 78-80/98-100R2. Both of those blocks and this block were offered in the Caspary sale. The two larger blocks were reunited in the Zoellner collection and are now in the William H. Gross collection.

The righthand vertical pair is sound and exceptionally choice, and the bottom right stamp is an Extremely Fine Gem. However, we hope this block will remain intact, because it is one of the finest Plate 2 pieces we have encountered. The Wagshal collection, which included Neinken's holding, did not have a perforated Plate 2 block of this quality.

Original gum, small h.r., pretty shade, short perfs upper left, otherwise Fine, this is probably a Plate 12 C Relief (Type I, Scott 18) but the bottom perfs cut off the design, so we offer it as less expensive Scott 20
