Sale Number 1120, Lot Number 1695, Newspapers and Periodicals24c Pink, 1894 Issue (PR96). Mint N.H, 24c Pink, 1894 Issue (PR96). Mint N.H24c Pink, 1894 Issue (PR96). Mint N.H. block of four with bottom imprint selvage, h.r. on perfs in selvage only (reinforcing a few minor separations at bottom), brilliant color, outstanding centering with perfs clear of design on all stamps, bottom left stamp small natural gum crease

VERY FINE AND CHOICE. AN EXTREMELY RARE IMPRINT BLOCK OF FOUR OF THE 1894 24-CENT UNWATERMARKED BUREAU NEWSPAPER ISSUE, CONTAINING ALL MINT NEVER-HINGED STAMPS.

As this marvelous position multiple shows, the 1894 Bureau printing was made from the old plates of the American and Continental Bank Note Companies. The plates were re-entered, and there are also other differences in the printings, including the paper and gum. This issue was not in service for very long before the new plates were ready for the Bureau-produced issue of 1895.

A Power Search review reveals the rarity of this stamp as an imprint block. We have sold two others since keeping computerized records. One block had all hinged stamps. The second block was Mint N.H. but had Fine centering. The combination of Mint N.H. stamps and Very Fine centering on this block makes it a true condition rarity.

With 2015 P.F. certificate. Unpriced in Scott as Mint N.H. Scott Retail for hinged block of four without regard to the imprint

Light purple Cincinnati O. straightline handstamp, characteristic pastel shade, well-centered within particularly wide margins, light vertical wrinkle

VERY FINE AND IMMENSELY RARE. ONE OF ONLY TWO RECORDED USED EXAMPLES OF THE 24-CENT 1894 FIRST BUREAU ISSUE. THIS IS EASILY THE FINER OF THE TWO.

The only other recorded used example that we can find was offered in the Richard Collier sale in 2009. That example was centered to the top left, had a corner crease and surface scrape.

With 2005 P.S.E. certificate

EXTREMELY FINE ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 24-CENT 1894 FIRST BUREAU ISSUE.

The high-denomination 1894 Unwatermarked Bureau issues are extremely rare and often plagued with poor centering and faults. If a "condition census" for PR96 were compiled we believe this stamp would rank among the finest extant.

Ex Vineyard and Hoffman. With 1992 and 2005 P.F. certificates.

FINE. AN INCREDIBLY RARE MINT NEVER-HINGED IMPRINT BLOCK OF FOUR OF THE 1894 20-CENT UNWATERMARKED NEWSPAPERS AND PERIODICALS BUREAU ISSUE.

As this marvelous position multiple shows, the 1894 Bureau printing was made from the old plates of the American and Continental Bank Note Companies. The plates were re-entered, and there are also other differences in the printings, including the paper and gum. This issue was not in service for very long before the new plates were ready for the Bureau-produced issue of 1895. A few other blocks are contained in Power Search, but only one other has the imprint (from the Whitpain collection) and it is hinged. In fact, Power Search contains only a single Mint N.H. stamp, and it is badly off-center.

With 2012 P.F. certificate. Scott Retail as hinged
