Summary

Position 36 is exceptionally fresh and very lightly hinged. It was part of the Sidney A. Hessel collection sold by H. R. Harmer (Part 3, November 5, 1976, lot 1075). Hessel, a long-time collector, might have been the first person to acquire this position when the sheet was broken up by Eugene Klein in 1918 (there is no sale record prior to Hessel's ownership). This would explain its exceptionally fresh condition and the presence of a single faint hinge mark.

After the Hessel sale, the stamp was owned by Kenneth Wenger, a New Jersey stamp dealer and investor. It eventually became part of the "Windsor" collection, which was acquired intact by Perry Hansen. It was acquired by Mr. Petersen in the 2008 Siegel sale of the Hansen collection (Sale 963).

Position 36 will be offered by Siegel Auction Galleries on April 30, 2021, at 1:30PM New York time
