EXTREMELY FINE. ARGUABLY THE FINEST KNOWN WIDE-TOP PLATE NUMBER BLOCK OF THE 2-CENT LINCOLN ON BLUISH PAPER.
A Power Search review will reveal how plate blocks of the 2c Lincoln Bluish Paper issue are almost always poorly centered. This block is not only a desirable wide top position, its centering is unlike any other we have encountered. Incalculably rare in this quality and worthy of a strong bid.
EXTREMELY FINE PANE OF 100 OF THE 2-CENT LINCOLN ON BLUISH PAPER, WITH TWO MINT NEVER-HINGED PLATE BLOCKS AND 82 OTHER NEVER-HINGED STAMPS.
A review using Power Search found only two other panes of 100, both with a handful of hinged stamps. One is a lower left pane from the 400-subject plate with shorter selvage in the bottom plate block (both of which are hinged). This example, a top left pane with full selvage and two Mint N.H. plate blocks, is very desirable.
