EXTREMELY FINE. AN INCREDIBLY RARE MINT NEVER-HINGED PLATE BLOCK OF THE $1.00 PERF 10 UNWATERMARKED FRANKLIN ISSUE WITH WIDE TOP SELVAGE.

Plate blocks of Scott 478 are extremely rare, especially in Mint N.H. condition. A review of important plate block collections turned up very few. The only other Mint N.H. plate block we were able to locate was sold in our sale of the Silver Lake collection, but it is not centered as well as the Mint N.H. plate block offered here.

With 2008 P.S.E. certificate.

Sale Number 866, Lot Number 623, Plate Blocks (Scott 461 thru 480)$1.00 Violet Black (478), $1.00 Violet Black (478)$1.00 Violet Black (478). Mint N.H. top imprint, "A", and plate no. block of six with full selvage, deep dark color and sharp proof-like impression, remarkably post-office fresh and intact

VERY FINE. AN INCREDIBLY RARE MINT NEVER-HINGED PLATE BLOCK OF THE RARE $1.00 PERF 10 UNWATERMARKED FRANKLIN ISSUE WITH FULL TOP SELVAGE.

Our search of auction catalogues of major plate block collections has yielded precious few examples, and none are Mint Never-Hinged. Todd had two with full top selvage, but both were hinged, and Wampler had one hinged with narrow bottom selvage. This may be unique in Mint Never-Hinged condition with full top selvage.
