HISTORY AND COMMENTARY

The Top Value and Rarest of Second Bureau Plate Blocks

Only four plate blocks of the $5.00 1902 Issue are recorded, including one in the National Postal Museum (top position) and another in the Miller collection owned by The New York Public Library (extra wide bottom position). The only other plate block available to collectors, with similar size selvage and also from the top position, was offered in our sale of the W. Parsons Todd collection in 1977.
