152 ogbl Image30c Orange (71). Block of four, original gum, h.r. where few perf separations sensibly reinforced, light vertical creases, few toned spots on back

FINE APPEARING ORIGINAL-GUM BLOCK OF FOUR OF THE 30-CENT 1861 ISSUE. A BLOCK OF FOUR IS THE LARGEST RECORDED UNUSED MULTIPLE.

As this block demonstrates, the 30c 1861 plate left very little space between the stamp subjects. Consequently, perforations usually cut into part of the design. This fact is acknowledged in both the Scott Catalogue and Stamp Market Quarterly, and the 30c 1861-68 Issue is one of the few for which centering standards are adjusted accordingly. Virtually every well-centered original-gum block of the 30c 1861 has been broken into singles.

153   Image30c Orange (71). Rich color, cancelled by neat strike of Union Soldier's Head fancy cancel of New York City (Skinner-Eno PH-F 72), stamp with repair at bottom left, Very Fine strike of this distinct fancy cancel, the creation and use of this fancy cancel in the Spring of 1866 coincided with the return of soldiers from the Civil War, it is known on at least one domestic cover, but apparently the cancelling device migrated to the foreign-mail exchange office, where it was used to cancel stamps on mail to foreign countries (Image)
