The Ambassador J. William Middendorf II Collection: Classic United States and Hawaii continued...

5c-10c 1847 Issue
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
32 bl Image5c Red Brown (1). Reconstructed block of six from vertical strips of Positions 79/89/99R1 and 80/90/100R1, containing Double Transfer Types A (Position 80) and B (Position 90), mostly large margins all around, rich Deep Red Brown color and impression from the first printing, each with vivid red grid cancel, top two stamps faintly creased

THE UNIQUE ASHBROOK RECONSTRUCTION”--A BLOCK OF SIX DIVIDED INTO TWO VERTICAL STRIPS AND REJOINED TO FORM ONE EXTREMELY FINE AND INCOMPARABLE SHOWPIECE.

The left strip was owned by Stanley B. Ashbrook. In 1918, while viewing the Judge Robert S. Emerson collection, he realized that a similar strip owned by the judge had once adjoined his own. The reconstructed block is illustrated in the Brookman book (Volume 1, page 43).

Vertical 5c 1847 strips are very rare, on or off cover. It is reported that only one other 5c multiple exists with both double transfers--a pair from Positions 80 and 90R--but the pair is cut into at bottom and right.

Ex Emerson, Ashbrook, Newbury, Dr. Morris and Mirsky. With 1980 Freidl and 1983 P.F. certificates. 1996 Calvet M. Hahn analysis accompanies. (Image)

10-CENT 1847 ISSUE. ESPECIALLY DESIRABLE WITH THE SHEET MARGIN.

To underscore the rarity of any original-gum multiple of the 10c 1847, there are only three unused blocks recorded (two with original gum), one of which is contained in the Hirzel collection at the Swiss PTT Museum. Only four pairs and a strip of three could be located in our computerized sale records using Power Search.

36   Image10c Black (2). Positions 85-89L1, horizontal strip of five, large margins to in at two small places, tied by red grid cancels on small piece, few flaws including creases, tears and scrapes

FINE-VERY FINE APPEARANCE. AN EXTREMELY RARE STRIP OF FIVE OF THE 10-CENT 1847 ISSUE. VERY FEW LARGE MULTIPLES ARE KNOWN.

Very few intact multiples of this size are recorded. The famous Rush cover (in the William H. Gross Collection and last sold by Siegel in 2006) bears a horizontal strip of six, and there are five other covers containing intact strips of either five (four covers) or six (one other cover). Strips of four are known used, most of which probably paid the transcontinental rate.
