Sale 1192, Lot 698, Air Post, Later Issues (Scott C18-C119a)50c Trans-Pacific, Air Post (C22). Mint N.H. wide top plate no. 21625 block of six, vivid color, choice centering, minor natural gum bends

VERY FINE. AN EXTREMELY RARE MINT NEVER-HINGED WIDE TOP PLATE BLOCK OF THE 50-CENT CLIPPER ISSUE.

Advanced collectors of U.S. plate blocks understand that this issue is far rarer as a wide top Mint N.H. plate block than even the $2.60 Graf Zeppelin. A Power Search review found only two other examples offered in our auctions since 1993. The Scott Catalogue notes "wide full selvage top margin plate blocks of No. C22 are extremely scarce and sell for $3,00.00 or more" (versus $85.00 price for regular plate block)
