Lot 925 Victoria

Description

Imperforate 1/- blue SG 25 extraordinary block of 24 Types [17-24/25-32/33-40] from the base of the sheet, huge to humungous margins except at the top where six units are just touched to shaved, Position [36] with 'VIGTORIA' Flaw, some bends & creasing including horizontally across the upper row, 10mm vertical tear into the fourth unit & a minor closed tear in the margin at right, a few small central stains, remarkably all units with full unmounted original gum, Cat £31,200++, for 24 unused singles. Only a few unused singles are known. This is the only recorded unused block and also the largest recorded multiple of this unusual Classic issue. A famous block and one of the most important items of Victorian and Australian Colonies philately: illustrated by Geoff Kellow at page 85 where he states: "Mint blocks were unknown until 1981 when the remarkable discovery occurred in Adelaide of a block of 24". RPSofL Certificate (2019). This is the seond-largest block of the Victorian imperforate issues, exceeded only by the famous block of 29 of the Penny Half-Lengths. However, this block has a far higher face value: 24/- (£1/4/-) as against a mere 29d = 2/5d for the penny block. It also provides stark visual evidence why even singles with full margins are as scarce as the proverbial hen's teeth. [From another vendor]
