AN IMPRESSIVE 1869 PICTORIAL MULTIPLE, APART FROM THE 3¢ 1869 (WHICH EXISTS IN SHEETS), ONE OF THE LARGEST BLOCKS OF THE 1869 ISSUE AND HAS NOT APPEARED ON THE AUCTION MARKET SINCE A 1982 SIEGEL RARITIES OF THE WORLD AUCTION.
The 1869 mono chrome issues (1¢ - 12¢) were printed in sheets of 300 and divided into two panes of 150 examples. Whereas the 1869 Bi-Color issues (15¢ - 90¢) were printed in sheets of 100.
