Sale Number 1148, Lot Number 154, Experimental Paper and Two-Cent Lincoln (China Clay, Scott 369)2c Lincoln, Bluish (369), 2c Lincoln, Bluish (369)2c Lincoln, Bluish (369). Wide top imprint, solid star and plate no. 4978 block of six, bottom center stamp lightly hinged, others Mint N.H., extraordinary margins and centering, rich color

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.
