    1858/61: 40 parale greenish blue on yellowish paper, printed in Jassy between 1860 and 1861, the complete mint sheet of 32 subjects (8 x 4) printed from one cliché only, (the sheet in Corinphila sale 179 being printed from two separate clichés) showing the central rows tête-bêche (and thus with eight vertical tête-bêche pairs), some creasing apparent but fresh and fine for this with large part typical yellowish-brown original gum. No more than two sheets existing in this shade, this being the finer of the two (the other being ex Rothschild & Cornelia). A rare and exceptional multiple. Illustrated in Edition d'Or on page 66 and in Handbook III. Signed Bühler; cert. Pfenninger (1969) and Heimbüchler (2010).rnProvenance: Collection 'Moldau', Corinphila sale 171, 9 Sept 2011, lot 6034.rn
