109 1 1861 2p Dull Rose on Yellowish Wove Paper, Perf 9 A spectacular mint block of fifteen with intact sheet margin at foot, remarkably well centered for these notoriously difficult stamps; some perf separation reinforced by hinges in places, trivial thins on a couple stamps in top row and trivial foxing on two others, nonetheless a beautiful block in an excellent state of preservation and by far THE LARGEST KNOWN MULTIPLE OF THE TWO PENCE, in fact no other multiples of the entire 1861 Issue come close to this block. Full original gum, hinged to lightly hinged on eleven stamps leaving four NEVER HINGED (third and fourth stamps in second and third rows). A cornerstone for someone wishing to begin a world-class collection of Prince Edward Island, VF OG / NH (Unitrade cat. $34,000)
