HISTORY AND COMMENTARY

There are eight plate blocks of Scott 183 recorded in the Chapin census. Among these there are only three recorded top plate blocks, including one in a pane of 100 which may or may not be intact. The Wampler collection contained a bottom plate block from Plate 391, which was not included in the Chapin census, bringing the total count to nine plate blocks with three known from the top position. The other top position plate block outside of the pane has the Continental Bank Note Co. imprint, so if the pane is intact, then the example offered here is the only top position plate block with the American imprint.
