FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE MULTIPLE OF THE 2-CENT UNGRILLED BLACK JACK SHOWING THE COMPLETE IMPRINT AND PLATE NUMBER.

Fourteen full plate blocks of eight are recorded in the Chapin census, but very few have been offered on the market -- Power Search contains only two offered in our auctions since 1994 and all of our Rarities sales. Plate 29 is especially rare, as only three full plate blocks are recorded in the Chapin census, including one listed as stolen.

Ex "Sevenoaks". With 2001 P.F. certificate
