VERY FINE AND CHOICE. AN EXTREMELY RARE ORIGINAL-GUM BLOCK OF FOUR OF THE 1870 10-CENT NATIONAL BANK NOTE COMPANY UNGRILLED ISSUE. THIS IS THE FIRST INTACT ORIGINAL-GUM BLOCK WE HAVE OFFERED SINCE KEEPING COMPUTERIZED RECORDS.

A review using Power Search found that we have never offered an intact original-gum block in all of our Rarities sales, or in any of our auctions since 1993. The one example located with Power Search was reinforced and rejoined, and had clipped perfs at bottom. Except for the Caspary sale, none was offered in any auctions known for blocks, including Zoellner and Whitman.
