179 ngbl Image5c Green, Stone 2 (1). Positions 2-7/12-17/22-27, block of 18 in 6 x 3 format, unused (no gum), huge margins two sides including top sheet margin, portions of three adjoining stamps at left, ample to full margins at bottom and right, rich color, flaws including small piece out at bottom, creases and thins, unsurprising for a multiple of this size

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.

180 ngbl Image5c Green, Stone 1 (1). Top left corner margin block of 28, crossing two transfers of the stone, Positions 1-5/41-45 of the upper transfer unit and 1-2/11 of the lower transfer unit, margins to clear other sides, unused (traces of gum), typical flaws for a Confederate multiple of this size including creases and a few small thins

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE LARGE BLOCK OF THE CONFEDERATE STATES "NUMBER ONE", CROSSING TWO TRANSFERS OF THE 50-SUBJECT STONE.

The Confederate 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 that cross two different transfers are very desirable. We have encountered a number of such multiples of the 5c Blue Scott No. 4, but multiples of First Issue No. 1 are considerably rarer.

Ex Freeman. Scott value as original-gum blocks, pairs and singles without premium for the positions (Image)
