FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE ORIGINAL-GUM BLOCK OF FOUR OF THE 1860 5-CENT TYPE II BROWN.

The 5c Brown Type II is far rarer in multiples than the Orange Brown. Unlike the 1861 Orange Brown, the earlier printing in Brown was not left in Southern post offices when the issue was demonetized in August 1861. The largest recorded multiple is the block of 20 offered in our Frelinghuysen sale, followed by a block of nine with plate number and imprint at left, one horizontal block of six (creased thru bottom three stamps) and approximately a half-dozen blocks of four. Photos of most of the known blocks can be located on our website using Power Search, which will provide visual confirmation of the generally poor centering and condition of most surviving multiples.
