VERY FINE APPEARANCE. AN EXTREMELY RARE LARGE MULTIPLE OF THE CONFEDERATE STATES "NUMBER ONE" FROM STONE 2. THIS BLOCK OF 18 IS THE LARGEST RECORDED MULTIPLE FROM STONE 2.
A Power Search review reveals the rarity of large multiples of the first Confederate States Issue, particularly from Stone 2. The unique full pane of 100, as well as the two half-panes of 50, all from the Ackerman sheet of 200, are from Stone 1. Apart from this block of 18, the largest multiple we have offered from Stone 2 since 1993 and in all our Rarity sales is a block of four. Noted lithograph collector Leonard Hartmann believes that this is the largest known multiple, with the next largest a block of 10.
