HISTORY AND COMMENTARY

Plate blocks of the 15¢ 1902 are notoriously difficult to obtain from the top position, especially with such wide selvage. Power Search found only three from the top position--two have selvage significantly smaller than the block offered here, and the one with comparable selvage has thin spots in two stamps. Todd had two, but one has a piece out of the top right corner stamp. This brings our total count to four wide tops. The Fogelson collection, which specialized in top positions, did not contain any. Those waiting for this plate block in Mint N.H. condition will have a long wait; we have offered only one, from the right position, in our 2003 "Silver Lake" sale. The Philatelic Foundation has certified one wide Mint N.H. top plate block of ten, but its whereabouts is unknown.
