EXTREMELY FINE PAIR OF IMPRINT BLOCKS OF TWELVE OF THE NEW ORLEANS 5-CENT POSTMASTER'S PROVISIONAL -- REJOINED FROM THE SAME SHEET. A WONDERFUL SHOWPIECE.
The third printing was issued in early December 1861, and most of the unused multiples come from supplies of this printing on hand when New Orleans was captured by Federal forces in April 1862.
Right block with 2000 P.F. certificate. Scott value as blocks and pairs with no premium for the imprints or the Mint N.H. gum
