2633 og Image15c Brown & Blue, Ty. II (119). Original gum, nearly perfect centering with wide margins all around, deep shades of Brown and Blue, fresh and bright

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. ONE OF THE FEW 15-CENT TYPE II 1869 PICTORIAL STAMPS IN EXISTENCE WITH ORIGINAL GUM, SUPERB CENTERING AND FRESHNESS.

Even though the supply of Type II stamps (Scott 119) is more plentiful than its Type I counterpart (Scott 118), we have found that it is at least as difficult, if not more so, to find in such superb condition. This Type II is both centered and lightly hinged, and the vignette is nicely aligned to the frame, something that perfectionists will appreciate.

2637 ogbl Image15c Brown & Blue, Ty. II (119). Block of 20 with right sheet margin and color registration markers, Positions 46-50/56-60/66-70/76-80, marvelous rich colors and impression, slightly disturbed original gum, h.r., centered to bottom right, perf separations sensibly reinforced, creases affect center two rows

ONE OF THE LARGEST 15-CENT TYPE II 1869 PICTORIAL BLOCKS IN EXISTENCE. THIS BLOCK ORIGINALLY COMES FROM THE UNUSED BLOCK OF FIFTY, WHICH WAS LAST SEEN INTACT IN THE 1920s AND WAS BROKEN INTO SMALLER UNITS SOME TIME AGO.

The 1869 Pictorial Issue was a transformative set of stamps created during a period of historic transition. With their novel shapes and imagery, they reflected the choice of President Johnson's postmaster general, Alexander Randall, but they were inherited by Grant's new postmaster general, John A. J. Creswell. In the midst of Reconstruction's political controversies, the 1869s were spurned by the public and quickly replaced with the 1870 Issue, bearing traditional portraits of statesmen, war heroes and Founding Fathers.

The four 1869 high values were printed in two colors. The 15c vignette is an engraving by Smillie, based on Balch's engraving from an 1839 oil painting entitled Landing of Columbus by John Vanderlyn.

We record four intact unused blocks of 20, as follows:

1) With left selvage, ex Wingate (Sale 1180, lot 174)

2) Bottom right corner selvage with blue imprint and plate no. 23, ex previous Rarities sales (including 1977), Walske and Dr. Heimburger (Sale 1054, lot 441)

3) Bottom right corner selvage with blue imprint and plate no. 23, originally a block of 33, reduced to the block of 20 sometime after our 1966 Stern sale (Sale 309, lot 144), ex Gross (Sale 1200, lot 102)

4) Right selvage with plate marker, centered to bottom right, from the block of 50 shown in Rose book (fig. 159, p. 122), ex Walske, 1999 Rarities sale (Sale 811, lot 120), the block offered here

Scott value as four blocks of four and two pairs is $78,000.00 (Image)
