FINE AND EXTREMELY RARE PLATE NUMBER MULTIPLE OF THE 50-CENT BRIGHT CLARET POSTAGE DUE. ESPECIALLY DESIRABLE IN MINT NEVER-HINGED CONDITION.
A Power Search review failed to find another J28 plate number example in any size since our 1993 Rarities sale. Scott Retail as singles with no premium for the positions
VERY FINE. AN INCREDIBLY RARE MINT NEVER-HINGED PLATE BLOCK OF SIX OF THE 1914 3-CENT POSTAGE DUE ISSUE IN THE CARMINE LAKE SHADE. THIS IS THE FIRST PLATE BLOCK IN THIS SHADE WE HAVE OFFERED SINCE KEEPING COMPUTERIZED RECORDS.
This issue is rare in any block form -- we have offered only one plate block, in the Dull Rose shade (Scott J54a, hinged), since keeping computerized records. This is the first in this shade we have offered.
Illustrated in Durland catalogue. Unlisted in Scott as Mint N.H. Scott Retail as hinged.
