HISTORY AND COMMENTARY

Extraordinarily Wide Selvage

Top position plate blocks of the 10¢ Louisiana Purchase Issue are very difficult to obtain, especially in Mint N.H. condition and with wide selvage. A Power Search review indicates the last we offered was in 2012, but the perfs on that block touch the design. Our 2007 "Saddleback" auction contained one, but its perfs almost touch the design. One has to go back to our 2002 Drucker sale to find a plate block comparable in quality to the one offered here.
