We have offered only four plate blocks since keeping digital records, including two from the top and two from the bottom. For the other two top positions contained in Power Search, one is missing the "No." (so technically is not a full plate block) and the other is a plate of ten. This is the first from the top position we have offered in Mint N.H. condition.

Ex Wampler. With 1988 P.F. certificate noting only one stamp previously hinged. Scott Retail as plate block of ten and singles
