Ian comments: "About 20 years ago I was on the floor of a prominent auction house when a block of four of the 10 cent Albert was called. The auctioneer informed the audience that perhaps as few as three blocks of four were known and that a block was the largest known multiple. Here we have a block of twelve. The Baillie sales had many impressive multiples and this is one. It would look spectacular on any album page."
