EXTREMELY FINE IMPRINT AND PLATE NUMBER BLOCK OF SIX OF THE 5-CENT TRANS-MISSISSIPPI ISSUE. TOP PLATE BLOCKS OF SIX ARE RARELY SEEN IN THIS CHOICE MINT NEVER-HINGED CONDITION.

The Trans-Mississippi plate blocks were initially collected in units of four stamps. Plate blocks of six are much scarcer, and top positions are the most desirable. This wide top plate block of six of the 5c has the extra element of quality, by virtue of its choice centering and Mint N.H. condition.
