HISTORY AND COMMENTARY

We have offered only two other plate blocks from the top position since keeping computerized records. Both were Mint N.H., but one has perforations touching the design. The other is a plate block of 16 with centering comparable to the one offered here. Wampler had one from the bottom position, and Dr. Fogelson did not have any. The Philatelic Foundation has not certified any other 6¢ 1890 plate blocks from the top position.
