140 ogbl Image12c Black (69). Block of four, original gum, h.r. but looks nice on the back, intense shade and impression

FINE. A SCARCE SOUND ORIGINAL-GUM BLOCK OF FOUR OF THE 12-CENT 1861 ISSUE.

Sound blocks with original gum have always been scarce, but the harvesting of centered singles has left very few blocks intact -- the largest recorded unused multiple is a block of six. Most remaining blocks are off center or have faults.

With 1989 P.F. certificate (Image)

143 ogbl Image24c Brown Lilac (70a). Block of four, original gum, bit heavy h.r., radiant color on crisp paper, top left stamp 7mm tear at right center, few minor perf separations

FINE-VERY FINE APPEARANCE. AN EXTREMELY RARE ORIGINAL-GUM BLOCK OF FOUR OF THE 24-CENT 1861 ISSUE IN THE BROWN LILAC SHADE. PERHAPS THREE OR FOUR EXIST.

We would have lost a bet if asked about the rarity of unused blocks of Scott 70 or 70a before trying to answer the question of how many exist. The collections that are famous for blocks -- Caspary, Lilly, Ishikawa and Klein -- did not have any Red Lilac or Brown Lilac unused blocks. Only one other is contained in Power Search.

With 2004 P.S.E. certificate (Image)

144 og Image24c Brown Lilac (70a). Large part original gum, showing dry print with part of design missing at left, few creases, Very Fine and very unusual, this is wider than normal and so likely came from the leftmost column of the plate where the ink was wiped away a bit too vigorously by the pressman, Scott Retail $3,250.00 as normal stamp (Image)

147   Image24c Steel Blue (70b). Horizontal pair, gorgeous centering, deep rich color at the darker end of the Steel Blue spectrum, each tied by red Type A "Supplementary Mail" handstamp on small blue piece with part of Jan. 16, 1862 transit datestamp

EXTREMELY FINE. A GORGEOUS PAIR OF THE 1861 24-CENT STEEL BLUE TIED ON A PIECE BY THE SUPPLEMENTARY MAIL CANCEL. TRULY PHENOMENAL IN EVERY RESPECT.

We are surprised this pair has remained intact, as the 24c Steel Blue shade is difficult to find with such choice centering. (Image)
