FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE ORIGINAL-GUM BLOCK OF FOUR OF THE 24-CENT GRAYISH LILAC, SCOTT 78a. VERY FEW BLOCKS ARE KNOWN.

The 24c Grayish Lilac is an incredibly rare stamp in choice original-gum condition. It is also rare as a multiple, since most have been broken to feed demand for singles. We have offered only one other since 1994.

Unlisted in Scott as a block. Scott Retail as the normal Lilac shade (Image)

178   Image24c Lilac (78). Rich color, cancelled by bold strike of Waterbury Conn. Bridgeport Fireman fancy cancel, (Rohloff E-6), stamp with light creases

EXTREMELY FINE STRIKE OF THE FAMOUS BRIDGEPORT FIREMAN FANCY CANCELLATION, WHICH WAS CREATED IN WATERBURY BY POSTMASTER JOHN W. HILL. ITS USE ON A 24-CENT STAMP IS LIKELY UNIQUE.

This cancel was inspired by the annual Bridgeport Fireman's Parade through Waterbury. It is almost always seen on 3c stamps, though a few are known on 1c stamps or on a 3c entire. This use on a 24c stamp is truly remarkable -- we can only fantasize about what the cover must have looked like.

Ex Hessel and Jennings. With 1976 P.F. and 1994 P.S.E. certificates. (Image)
