Sale Number 1057, Lot Number 620, 1861-66 Issue (Scott 56-78)3c Rose, Imperforate (65c), 3c Rose, Imperforate (65c)3c Rose, Imperforate (65c). Bottom imprint and plate no. 11 block of eight, unused (no gum), ample margins other sides, rich color with slight paper mottling as normally seen on these imperforates, tiny edge tears at top of pos. 1 and 3

VERY FINE. AN EXTREMELY RARE PLATE BLOCK OF THE IMPERFORATE 3-CENT 1861 ISSUE.

The imperforate 3c 1861's on stamp paper are normally encountered without gum, though some original-gum examples do survive. Pairs are readily available and we have offered a handful of blocks of four. However, plate blocks are extremely rare. A Power Search review failed to find another plate block of this issue in our sales since 1994.

Inadvertently omitted from 2012-14 Scott Specialized Catalogs. 2011 Scott Retail as four pairs of No. 65Pc (imperforate on stamp paper)
