Description

The Amick book notes that Spencer Anderson sold the block to Ethel Stewart (later Ethel McCoy) for $16,000.

The block was subsequently stolen in 1955 while on display at the American Philatelic Society convention in Norfolk Va. Mrs. McCoy was reimbursed $15,000 by the insurers. The rights to the block were assigned by Mrs. McCoy to the American Philatelic Research Library (APRL) of State College Pa.
