HISTORY AND COMMENTARY

No Scott 190 plate blocks are known with the Continental imprint--the known examples come from Plate 405 (American imprint). The Chapin census lists four plate blocks plus a pane of 100 offered in the 11/13/1944 Green sale, which was not illustrated. If that pane was broken, it is possible its two plate blocks are included in the census. We have not offered one since the 1992 Rarities of the World sale.

FINE. AN ATTRACTIVE SHEET-MARGIN BLOCK OF FOUR OF THE 1879 30-CENT AMERICAN BANK NOTE COMPANY ISSUE, WITH THE BOTTOM RIGHT STAMP IN MINT NEVER-HINGED CONDITION.

Based on centering and the width of the sheet selvage, this block probably originated from the same sheet as the left sheet-margin block of the 30c 1879 American in the Lilly collection (Siegel Sale 327, lot 171).
