HISTORY AND COMMENTARY

This is an extremely rare plate block in Mint N.H. condition. Our computerized records contain only one other, from the left position (perfs touch design). A review of name sales also failed to find another. If we expand the criteria to include hinged plate blocks, there are perhaps three or four others, all with narrower selvage.

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS SPECTACULAR MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 1895 10-CENT WATERMARKED BUREAU ISSUE HAS BEEN GRADED SUPERB 98 BY P.S.E. -- THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED.

The 10c Green 1895 Issue with double-line watermark has an earliest known use of July 25, 1895. It superseded the 1894 unwatermarked Scott 258 and was subsequently replaced by the 10c Type I and Type II issues in Brown and Orange Brown (Scott 282C and 283) in 1898, during the color changes necessitated by the Universal Postal Union. Examples of any of the 10c Bureau issues in Mint N.H. condition graded higher than 95 are exceedingly rare. This is one of only two Scott 273s graded 98, while the other 10c issues each have populations of just one at 98 (one Scott 283a grades 100).

With 1987 P.F. and 2017 P.S.E. certificates (Superb 98; SMQ $10,000.00). This is the highest grade awarded and it is shared by only one other. There is not even a hinged example that exceeds this 98 grade
