EXTREMELY FINE. THE 10-CENT TRANS-MISSISSIPPI IS AN EXTREMELY DIFFICULT PLATE BLOCK TO OBTAIN WITH SUCH SUPERB CENTERING.

We still consider this one of the finest 10c Trans-Mississippi plate blocks despite the tiny gum imperfections. Ex Bakwin.

HISTORY AND COMMENTARY

The full imprint and plate number is contained within the selvage adjoining two stamps of the Trans-Mississippi Issue, so generations of collectors saved this issue in plate blocks of four, not six. We have never offered a Mint N.H. plate block of six from the top position since keeping computerized records. We have offered only one plate block of six from the bottom position, in 1999. Lilly owned a top left corner plate block of ten, and a few full panes are also known.

The great name auctions containing plate blocks, such as Colonel Green, Eno, Sinkler, Todd, the Weill Stock, Kobacker, Wampler and Fogelson, either had a plate block of four of the 10¢ Trans-Mississippi or none at all. We have sold only five other Mint N.H. top imprint and plate number blocks of four since keeping computerized records. We found only three that compare favorably to the superb plate block of four offered here.
