Bottom imprint and plate no. 21 block of ten, imprint and plate no. in color of the vignette, large margins, showing both blue and red registration marks at left, rich colors, few small edge tears in selvage only

EXTREMELY FINE APPEARANCE. A BEAUTIFUL AND RARE IMPRINT AND PLATE BLOCK OF TEN ON INDIA PAPER OF THE 30-CENT 1869 PICTORIAL ISSUE.

A review using Power Search found something very interesting. At one state of the plate, multiples from both the top and bottom of the sheet show only the imprint and no plate number. This is confirmed for both left and right halves of the sheet, and from both top and bottom positions. For example our Sale 891, lot 2007 shows the same position offered here, with registration marks at left and sheet margin at right, but only the imprint. The plate numbers for both frame and vignette must have been added later. Perhaps this was due to the rushed nature of the 30c production, after the Burgoyne design was rejected.

We have offered only one complete plate block from top and one from bottom (both from the left pane), plus one strip of eight from the top, since keeping computerized records. This is the only example from this position we have offered since keeping computerized records. Scott Retail as plate block of eight and two singles
