Category — 1901 Pan-American Issue Inverts (Scott 294-299)
EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB MINT NEVER-HINGED BLOCK OF FOUR OF THE 5-CENT PAN-AMERICAN WHICH IS QUITE LIKELY THE FINEST EXTANT.
With 2010 P.S.E. certificate (Gem 100). High grades are rarely seen among examples of the tightly-spaced Pan-American Issue, making this block even more remarkable. As an indication of the rarity of high-grade 5c Pan-American stamps, there is only one Mint N.H. single graded Gem 100 by P.S.E.
Scott Retail as four Mint N.H. singles
