FINE-VERY FINE. A RARE IMPRINT AND PLATE NUMBER BLOCK OF SIX OF THE $1.00 1912 DOUBLE-LINE WATERMARKED FRANKLIN ISSUE.

One of the rarest of all Washington-Franklin plate blocks and in our opinion undercataloged as Scott Retail in 1985 of $12,500.00 is not significantly higher today. Lewis Kaufman records nine top and two bottom plate blocks
