Sale Number 1043, Lot Number 2353, 10c Blue Lithograph Off-Cover (Scott 2b, 2)10c Blue, Paterson (2), 10c Blue, Paterson (2)10c Blue, Paterson (2). Horizontal strip of four with vertical gutter between center pair, unused (no gum), ample to large margins, few faults incl. thins and creases

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE CROSS-GUTTER MULTIPLE OF THE 10-CENT BLUE PATERSON ISSUE.

The C.S.A. Lithograph Issues (Scott 1-5) were produced from printing stones of 200 subjects, arranged in side-by-side panes of 100, with a vertical gutter between. Each of the left and right panes of 100 consisted of two transfers of the 50-subject transfer stone. Multiples crossing the vertical gutter that separated the left and right transfer units are rare, as the sheet of 200 was typically separated into panes of 100 before individual stamps or blocks were cut out.
