3d. yellow upper left corner block of sixteen (4x4) with variety orange (Eagle) omitted, superb unmounted mint and the second largest multiple after the lower left corner block of twenty-four. Unlike the block of twenty-four offered in the Neville Polakow auction, in which the first stamps in rows 8, 9 and 10 show varying traces of orange in the lower part of the shield, the block here shows absolutely no trace of any orange in the shield. A superb and highly important showpiece multiple of this rare variety. S.G. 78d, £19,200++. Photo

Note: The two blocks mentioned above came from a half sheet of sixty discovered in 1996
