FINE-EXTREMELY FINE. A RARE BLOCK OF FOUR OF THE 1851 ONE-CENT TYPE IV FROM PLATE ONE LATE, CONTAINING TWO SIGNIFICANT POSITIONS AT TOP.

This rare block from the top row of the right pane of Plate 1 Late contains Positions 6R and 7R, the same positions that produced Types Ib and I (respectively) on Plate 1 in its early state, before it was reworked and recut. This block shows one of the earliest and clearest impressions known from Plate 1 Late.

With 2009 P.S.E. certificate. Scott Retail as hinged block of four with no premium for the two Mint N.H. stamps at bottom or for the two better positions at top.
