Sale Number 1187, Lot Number 617, 1917-19 Issues (Scott 481-524)5c Carmine, Imperforate, Error (485), 5c Carmine, Imperforate, Error (485)5c Carmine, Imperforate, Error (485). Single error in a block of nine, the error at top center, lightly hinged, large margins, rich color

VERY FINE EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT IMPERFORATE ERROR IN A BLOCK WITH NORMAL 2-CENT STAMPS.

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 to the public Perf 10, Imperforate and Perf 11 (Scott 467, 485 and 505). The imperforate is by far the rarest of the three.

We doubt this will last much longer as a block -- this is a prime candidate to be made into a strip of three with the center stamp the error. Scott Retail as single error with no premium for the 2c stamps

FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE EXAMPLE OF THE 2-CENT A.E.F. BOOKLET PANE. IT IS BELIEVED THAT NO MORE THAN 20 EXIST IN ANY CONDITION.

The A.E.F. booklet panes were issued in September 1917, primarily for use by the American Expeditionary Forces in Europe during World War I. Only 3,000 panes were prepared of both the 1c and 2c denominations. By October they were no longer needed, as Congress voted to allow mail to be sent free of charge by active members of the Armed Forces. Many of the panes were destroyed.

With 2004 P.S.E. certificate
