EXTREMELY FINE APPEARING MINT NEVER HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT IMPERFORATE ERROR IN A BLOCK OF NINE.
During the course of production of the normal 2c plate No. 7942, three positions were noted to be defective. The plate was returned to the siderographer, who burnished out the three positions and mistakenly re-entered them using a transfer roll for the 5c stamp. The error passed unnoticed and the sheets were issued.
With 2015 P.F. certificate
VERY FINE AND CHOICE PAIR OF THE RARE 2-CENT CARMINE TYPE II ROTARY PRESS UNWATERMARKED COIL.
With 1994 and 2006 P.F. certificates (VF-XF 85)
FRESH AND FINE TO MOSTLY VERY FINE. A DESIRABLE SET OF PLATE BLOCKS OF THE 1917-19 WASHINGTON-FRANKLIN ISSUE, CONTAINING MOSTLY TOP AND BOTTOM POSITIONS.
This is an excellent opportunity to acquire this set, which is lacking only the rare Scott 500 to be complete (Scott 505 does not come in plate block form). The presence of nearly half Mint N.H. examples, and the preponderance of the more desirable top and bottom positions makes this set particularly nice.
