Summary

This stamp was the second stamp from top left in the block of eight, with Positions 85-88 and 95-98. First offered as a single in 1950. The gum has a tiny bit of mount-glazing but is otherwise lightly hinged.

The block of eight was purchased by Amos Eno in the 1944 Green sale, where the four left stamps were removed. This is the second stamp from top left in the block of eight.

It was next offered in the 1950 Harmer, Rooke auction of the Amos Eno collection, where it realized $3,000.

Its next appearance at auction was the 1999 Siegel sale of the Argentum collection, which was consigned by a client of the Weill brothers of New Orleans.
