FINE. A RARE MINT NEVER-HINGED BLOCK OF TEN OF THE ONE-DOLLAR TRANS-MISSISSIPPI, CONSIDERED BY MANY TO BE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL ENGRAVED STAMP EVER ISSUED BY THE UNITED STATES.

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. AN EXTREMELY RARE PLATE NUMBER BLOCK OF SIX OF THE $1.00 TRANS-MISSISSIPPI ISSUE.
The $1.00 Trans-Mississippi stamp is widely regarded as the most beautiful stamp ever issued by the United States. Plate blocks of six are much rarer than the four-stamp plate blocks. The Kobacker and Wampler collections only had plate number blocks of four, and other than a pane of 50 this is the only plate block of six we have offered since keeping computerized records.
FINE-VERY FINE. AN EXCEEDINGLY RARE WIDE BOTTOM PLATE BLOCK OF FOUR OF THE $2.00 TRANS-MISSISSIPPI ISSUE. THIS IS ONE OF THE RAREST OF ALL COMMEMORATIVE PLATE BLOCKS.
There are perhaps three imprint and plate no. blocks of six in existence. The imprint and plate no. block of four format is also extremely scarce.
