FINE-VERY FINE. A SCARCE AND ATTRACTIVE PLATE BLOCK OF THE 5-CENT 1890 ISSUE.
We have offered only four other full plate blocks of this issue since keeping computerized records. Two were plate blocks of ten and one other did not have the additional stamps to the side of the imprint. The example offered here, in the larger size, is very desirable.
