CSA 7-L, 5¢ blue DOUBLE PANE OF 200 showing White Tie Variety (position 30 UR) and ten sets of gutter pairs with filled in frames as well as a few other an UNLISTED BRASS RULE AT RIGHT in the sixth, seventh and ninth rows. This is listed in the CSA Catalog only as existing on the top row. Clearly, that is not the only location, nor is it logical that it should be only on the top. This was the topic of a joint article by Kevin Andersen and Trish Kaufmann in the 1Q 2019 issue of the CP. With full original gum that has never seen a hinge—even in the margins—fresh with excellent color due to complete protection from light, usual edge faults and gum creasing usually found on large multiples, as well as gum staining at upper left and few spots at bottom. Hand-held camera photo is fuzzy but the impression is not, Catalog Value well exceeds $6,000; Brass Rules are only now being studied to any real degree. $4,000.

z203

CSA 7-R, 5¢ dark blue PANE OF 100 (lower left) on thicker LOCAL PAPER showing FILLED IN FRAMES on full right column (gutter column) of stamps. Richmond paper is easily twice as rare as London paper, if not more, especially in large multiples. Full original gum, mostly never hinged, tear in left margin only which is supported by archival tape, pin holes in right margin, minimal creasing for its size. Catalog value well exceeds $4,000 just as singles, much more as blocks, and should be roughly double premium for never hinged not taken into account - thus more realistically putting it well over $8,000 in catalog value. VERY RARE MULTIPLE. $4,000.

CSA Catalog 7-L-v2, 5¢ light blue top right sheet margin block of 20 showing listed DOUBLE BRASS RULES at top as well as a trace of unlisted brass rules at right. Click here to read ground-breaking article by Kevin P. Andersen and Patricia A. Kaufmann on this catalog-changing topic in the Confederate Philatelist that explains what it is all about. Full original gum with two stamps hinged and all the rest never hinged, some creasing and edge wear. Click here to see the back of the block. Not listed in Scott, nor will it be, as they feel it too specialized for Scott (a more general catalog) and leave it to the CSA Catalog. Variety as a top row single catalogs $125 (thus $1,250 as singles for top row alone) and $950 for a block of 10 (5x2). This is double that with the addition of A brass rule at right (not yet cataloged but doubtless will be in future editions) as well as outer frame line filled in with in (7-L-v4). A rare and spectacular multiple. $1,500.
