HISTORY AND COMMENTARY

This is one of only three recorded complete imprint and plate number strips of the 90¢ 1873 Continental Bank Note Co. issue. One of the others is offered in lot 125; the third comes from the bottom position (Curtis collection, Sale 1084, lot 3436). No complete plate blocks are known of the 90¢ National or Continental issues. The Chapin book records the unique plate number block of four without imprint (2012 Rarities of the World, lot 172). There is also a block of four with imprint only (Whitman collection, Sale 968A, lot 202). As this strip beautifully demonstrates, Continental Bank Note Co. used the National plate to print 90¢ stamps in 1873.
