Mint N.H. wide bottom left corner imprint and plate no. 77 strip of five, half-arrow natural s.e. at right, representing the bottom row of the left pane, exceptionally rich color, extra wide top and bottom margins, the left stamp particularly choice centering, usual natural gum wrinkles

VERY FINE AND CHOICE. A SPECTACULAR MINT NEVER-HINGED CORNER-MARGIN IMPRINT AND PLATE NUMBER STRIP OF FIVE OF THE 10-CENT 1894 SPECIAL DELIVERY ISSUE.

Like the 1890's Bureau Issue plate strips offered earlier in the sale, this piece comes from an old-time collection and was most likely acquired by the previous owner through purchases at post offices in the 1890's and early 1900's. As such it has been kept out of the light since 1898 and has never before appeared at auction.

Scott Retail as Mint N.H. imprint and plate no. strip of three plus two singles
