EXTREMELY FINE. A RARE ORIGINAL-GUM BLOCK OF THE 1875 RE-ISSUE OF THE ONE-CENT 1869 PICTORIAL -- NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH THE MORE COMMON 1880 SPECIAL PRINTING.

Although the 1c 1880 Special Printing (Scott 133, 133a) exists in large multiples, the 1875 Re-Issue is extremely rare in block form. Using Power Search, we located three other blocks, but this appears to be tied for "finest known" with the block in our sale of the Alan B. Whitman collection (Sale 968).

Ex Bechtel, Zoellner and "Lafayette". With 2003 P.F. certificate. In our opinion, the Scott premium for a block versus four singles ($3,500.00 vs. $2,200.00) does not accurately reflect its scarcity, nor is it commensurate with the double and triple premiums assigned to the higher-denomination blocks.

VERY FINE. A RARE ORIGINAL-GUM BLOCK OF FOUR OF THE 2-CENT 1869 PICTORIAL RE-ISSUE.

We estimate that no more than seven or eight blocks of the 2c 1869 Re-Issue exist, including two blocks of six, two sheet-margin blocks, and three blocks of four. We have offered only one other since our 1998 Zoellner sale.

Ex Sinkler, Hetherington and Anderson. With 1970 and 1992 P.F. certificates. In our opinion, the Scott premium for a block versus four singles ($4,500.00 vs. $2,600.00) does not accurately reflect its scarcity, nor is it commensurate with the double and triple premiums assigned to the higher-denomination blocks.
