OF THE ONE-CENT 1869 PICTORIAL ISSUE1c Buff (112). Block of twelve with selvage and guide arrow at right, original gum, lightly hinged, deep rich color, few minor perf separations, some slight toning at right

VERY FINE. ORIGINAL-GUM BLOCKS OF THE ONE-CENT 1869 PICTORIAL ISSUE ARE VERY RARE, AND THE BLOCK OFFERED HERE IS ESPECIALLY DESIRABLE WITH THE PART ARROW AND SELVAGE AT RIGHT. A HIGHLY EXHIBITABLE MULTIPLE.

The 1c 1869 was printed in sheets of 300 consisting of two panes of 150. The largest recorded multiple is a left sheet-margin block of 48, and we also record five other multiples larger than a block of twelve, which is a very small number given the low denomination and size of the original sheets.

Scott Retail as two blocks of four and two pairs. (Image)

OF THE RARE AND DESIRABLE RUNNING CH1c Buff (112). S.e. at left, stamp defective, cancelled by Running Chicken fancy cancel of Waterbury Conn., also marked by blue German handstamp from Institute of Kirchenmusik in Erlangen

VERY FINE STRIKE OF THE RARE AND DESIRABLE RUNNING CHICKEN FANCY CANCELLATION OF WATERBURY, CONNECTICUT.

The Running Chicken is the most iconic of all designs produced by postmaster John W. Hill. The most famous item bearing this cancel is the cover with three 1c stamps, ex Ishikawa, which realized $230,000 hammer in 1995. The stamp offered here was probably used on a cover to Germany. One can only dream of what the full cover looked like, but this complete Running Chicken is a great rarity and highly exhibitable.
