VERY FINE. THIS IS THE ONLY RECORDED $2.00 HARDING PLATE BLOCK WITH YELLOW GREEN PLATE NUMBER AND MARKINGS OMITTED. A GREAT RARITY OF THE PRESIDENTIAL ISSUE.
Roland Rustad's book The Prexies makes no mention of this variety, nor does the Durland catalog. The sheets with arrows at top were printed first, followed later by the non-arrow sheets, so this does not come from an early printing. Durland lists vignette plate number 23479 as having been used with each of the five recorded frame plate numbers (22122, 22123, 23477, 23478 and 24480). A normal sheet with Yellow Green markings in selvage may be seen in lot 1021.
