FINE. A SCARCE BLOCK OF FOUR OF THE $2.00 1902 ISSUE WTIH THREE MINT NEVER-HINGED STAMPS.

Early Bureau dollar values are scarce as blocks of four and extremely rare in Mint N.H. condition. While this has one hinged stamp, we have to go back to 2002 in Power Search to find a completely Mint N.H. block

Block of 18 in 6 x 3 format, oval registry cancels, deep rich color, natural s.e. at left, five stamps with few trivial creases, rejoined along vertical row of perfs at center, perf separations reinforced between stamps -- all to be expected in a used multiple of this size

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. THIS IS THE LARGEST KNOWN USED MULTIPLE OF THE $2.00 1902 ISSUE.

This is an outstanding exhibition piece with incredible centering for such a large block of the $2.00 1902 Issue.

Scott Retail as three blocks of four and six singles does not give a true indication of its rarity.

Block of four with horizontal guideline, nice centering especially on the left pair, deep rich color, neat strikes of oval registry cancel, insignificant tiny thin speck in bottom right stamp

VERY FINE. AN EXCEEDINGLY RARE USED BLOCK OF THE $5.00 1902 ISSUE AND ONE OF THE FINEST EXTANT.

Used blocks of the $5.00 1902 Issue are extremely rare and seldom obtainable in essentially sound condition with decent centering. The block offered here is certainly among the finest extant.

Ex Seymour and from our 1969 and 1972 Rarities sales

Block of nine, nice centering, deep rich color, tied to canvas piece by multiple strikes of New York registry ovals, New York registry label applied over perfs of one stamp

VERY FINE. THIS IS THE LARGEST RECORDED MULTIPLE OF THE $5.00 1902 ISSUE EITHER USED OR UNUSED. A SPECTACULAR RARITY.

Used blocks of the $5.00 1902 Issue are very rare -- much rarer in fact than unused blocks. This block of nine is in another class and was used on a heavy registered package (weighed more than 28 pounds). A Power Search review failed to locate any other used multiple larger than a block of four.

With 2004 P.S.E. certificate. Scott Retail as block of four and five singles, which does not remotely convey the rarity of this multiple
