Sale Number 1199, Lot Number 1411, 1902-08 Issues (Scott 300-320)$2.00 Dark Blue (312), $2.00 Dark Blue (312)$2.00 Dark Blue (312). Mint N.H. with wide top plate no. 1630 selvage, rich color on bright paper, wide margins

VERY FINE AND CHOICE MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE $2.00 1902 ISSUE. ESPECIALLY DESIRABLE WITH THE WIDE PLATE NUMBER SELVAGE.

Only five plate blocks of this issue are recorded, with only one from the top position. We have offered two imprint and plate number strips of three, both bottom positions, with perfs into the design on both. This is the only plate number single we have offered since keeping computerized records. It should be considered a phenomenal rarity, by virtue of its pristine Mint N.H. gum, centering and the presence of wide top selvage.

With 2001 P.S.E. and 2004 P.F. certificates
