EXTREMELY FINE OVERALL APPEARANCE. AN IMPORTANT AND EXTREMELY RARE MULTIPLE OF THE URUGUAY 1859 80-CENTAVOS THIN NUMERALS ISSUE. ONLY ONE OTHER BLOCK IS RECORDED.

There are two recorded blocks of the 1859 80c Thin Numerals issue, both unused; the only other unused multiple is a pair, and the largest used multiple is a strip of three. The block offered here is the Lichtenstein-Dale-Hoffmann block. It was exhibited by Alfred F. Lichtenstein in his display of Uruguay at the May 1940 Collectors Club Centenary Exhibition. After Alfred's death in 1947, his daughter, Louise Boyd Dale, sold a number of major Uruguay rarities to Robert Hoffmann, whose exhibit captured the Grand Award at the 1956 FIPEX exhibition in New York City. The presence of this block in both exhibitions is confirmed by photographs of the exhibit pages.

The other recorded block, also an unused block of four (Positions 21-22/33-34), is ex Sciarra and was offered in the Spink-Investphila sale of the "Tito" collection (Part 1, Mar. 16, 2012, lot 1057). The description states "orange-yellow" and the shade in the catalogue photo appears to be a bit more yellow than the color of the block offered here. We do not know if the two blocks are actually in different shades.

Signed Soto Hermanos and Diaz. Ex Lichtenstein, Dale (by inheritance) and Hoffmann (purchased privately from Dale). (Image)
