Lithographed Issues (Scott 3-4)
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
202 ogbl Image2c Green (3). Block of 24 in 6 x 4 format, original gum which is slightly unevenly applied as often seen, h.r. in corners and at center, a few stamps Mint N.H., ample to full margins, just a couple very minor flaws including top right and bottom left stamps tiny thin spots, second stamp from right in top row small scuff

THIS IS THE LARGEST RECORDED MULTIPLE OF THE RARE 2-CENT GREEN LITHOGRAPH. IT IS THE FINER OF TWO KNOWN BLOCKS OF 24.

Noted Confederate Lithograph specialist Leonard Hartmann records the block of 24 from the Hall collection (Siegel Sale 840, lot 180) as the largest known multiple. It is also Extremely Fine appearing, with small faults. This block, which is the finer of the two blocks of 24, was off the market for more than 50 years before it was sold in Siegel's 2018 Kilbourne auction (Sale 1186, lot 661).

Ex Kilbourne. Scott value as six blocks of four (Image)

After his service as governor he was elected by the legislature to the U.S. Senate, but was refused his seat.

212 ogbl Image5c Blue, Stone 2 (4). Pane of 200 (less three stamps) with vertical gutter between, Positions 3-5 removed from left pane, over 160 stamps Mint N.H., original gum applied by brush, heavy brown gum toning on left pane, thins in top left corner block of four, two stamps with small holes, two vertical creases thru one row in each pane, many stamps with small stains

FINE-VERY FINE. THIS REMARKABLE SHEET IS THE LARGEST KNOWN MULTIPLE OF THE 1862 5-CENT BLUE LITHOGRAPH AND, IN FACT, STANDS AS THE LARGEST SURVIVING MULTIPLE OF ANY CONFEDERATE LITHOGRAPHED GENERAL ISSUE.

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 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. This unique artifact of Confederate philately wonderfully demonstrates the layout of the printing stone. This sheet was purchased by John R. Hill Jr. from Raymond and Roger Weill in 1987. The Weill's had purchased it from Philip Ward in 1963. It is also ex Walcott (lot 321).

Scott value as gutter pairs, blocks of four, pairs and one single (Image)
