Guide line pair, rich color, neat oval cancels, completely sound, Fine and exceptionally rare, this is easily one of the most difficult Washington-Franklin line pairs to find genuinely used in any condition, we sold a Very Fine-Extremely Fine appearing line pair with small faults in the James Depew collection (Sale 1206, lot 390), apart from that example Power Search lists only two others, both with margins cut in at top, faults and rejoined -- really not comparable to this sound and intact line pair, with 2001 and 2019 P.S.E. certificates

Sale Number 1209, Lot Number 1250, 1908-13 Washington-Franklin Issues (Scott 331-396)2c Alaska-Yukon, Imperforate (370a), 2c Alaska-Yukon, Imperforate (370a)2c Alaska-Yukon, Imperforate (370a). Mint N.H. top imprint and plate no. 5209 block of six, deep rich color, ample to large margins, typical natural gum bends, Very Fine, the Scott Catalogue began listing this as an imperforate error of the perforated Alaska-Yukon Issue in 2016, in a footnote it states "No. 370a comes from error panes found in perforated stock. Plate 5209 was used only to print the perforated Alaska-Yukon Issue. No. 370a can only be collected as a plate-number stamp or multiple. Without an attached plate number 5209, the stamps from this plate cannot be differentiated from No. 371." -- there is debate among specialists as to whether this truly constitutes an "error" or is simply an uncommon plate number for the normal imperforate issue (No. 371), in either case this is a very rare plate no. 5209 block and especially desirable from the top position, Power Search lists only two other plate no. 5209 blocks offered in our sales, from the right and bottom positions and sold together in our 2009 sale of the "MLG" collection (before the Scott listing for No. 370a), unpriced in Scott
