VERY FINE EXAMPLE OF THE 1894 5-CENT UNWATERMARKED BUREAU ISSUE IMPERFORATE HORIZONTALLY.
It is believed that most examples of this error originate from a part sheet purchased by a collector at the Richmond Va. post office. Most tend to be off center.

FINE-VERY FINE. A SOUND AND LIGHTLY-HINGED ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THIS RARE FIRST BUREAU ISSUE ERROR.
Brookman notes that the source of this error is likely a Western post office. Most examples we have encountered are centered to the left to varying degrees.

FINE. A RARE IMPRINT BLOCK OF THE 1895 $1.00 WATERMARKED ISSUE, WITH THE LEFT STAMPS TYPE I AND THE RIGHT STAMPS TYPE II.
The plate of the $1.00 1894-95 Bureau Issue consisted of fifteen vertical rows of Type I and five vertical rows of Type II, which accounts for the scarcity of Type II compared with Type I. There are only ten positions on the plate which yield combination pairs -- between the fifth and sixth rows of the right pane.
Scott Retail for block of four without premium for the imprint
FINE-VERY FINE ORIGINAL-GUM MULTIPLE OF THE 1895 $2.00 WATERMARKED BUREAU ISSUE. ONE OF THE RAREST IMPRINT AND PLATE NUMBER MULTIPLES OF THE ISSUE.
Lewis Kaufman records only five full imprint and plate number blocks of six, all in the Dark Blue sub-shade. The full plate block has a catalogue value of $85,000.00.
VERY FINE AND RARE IMPRINT AND PLATE NUMBER STRIP OF THE 1895 $5.00 WATERMARKED BUREAU ISSUE.
