EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS SUPERB STAMP IS GRADED GEM 100 BY P.S.E. -- THIS IS BY FAR THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED AND THE ONLY STAMP TO ACHIEVE IT.
With 2008 P.S.E. certificate (Gem 100; SMQ $9,100.00). As an indication of how rare the 6c 1898 is in higher grades, the next-highest grade awarded is a 95, and only three stamps in any condition (used, hinged etc.) have graded higher than a 95 (two used, both 98 and the 100 graded stamp offered here)
VERY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL AND VERY RARE MINT NEVER-HINGED LARGE FORMAT TOP PLATE BLOCK OF THE 1898 6-CENT WATERMARKED BUREAU ISSUE..
This piece comes from an old-time collection and was most likely acquired by the previous owner through purchases at post offices in the 1890's and early 1900's. As such it has been kept out of the light since 1898 and has never before appeared at auction. Power Search located only one other Mint N.H. plate block of this issue.
