EXTREMELY FINE GEM EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT 1922 ISSUE, GRADED SUPERB 98 JUMBO BY P.S.E. THIS STANDS ALONE AS THE HIGHEST GRADED EXAMPLE.

Advanced collectors of graded early 20th Century and of the 1922 Issue are familiar with the 5c Roosevelt stamp's status as one of the most difficult to find in the highest grades. Every stamp of the 1922 Issue except the 5c and the 9c has at least one example graded Gem 100 in Mint N.H. condition, and for the most part multiple examples at 98J. There are no 5c stamps graded Gem 100 and this is the only Mint N.H. 98J (the 9c has three 98J's).

With 2020 P.S.E. certificate (Superb 98 Jumbo; unpriced in SMQ above the grade of 98, SMQ $925.00 as 98)

EXTREMELY FINE. A RARE MINT NEVER-HINGED PLATE BLOCK OF THE $5.00 PRESIDENTIAL ISSUE IN THE RED BROWN AND BLACK COLOR.

Roland E. Rustad states in his book The Prexies that only twelve plate blocks of this distinctive color error are recorded (p. 329). We have no reason to doubt that count but we have not seen anywhere close to that many.

Mint N.H. pane of 100, Positions 98-100 with red "United States" completely omitted, also red plate number that should appear in selvage below Position 99 is omitted, all other stamps normal, choice centering and absolutely fresh

VERY FINE. A NEWLY DISCOVERED ERROR OF THE 1973 CROSSED-FLAGS ISSUE. THIS SHEET CONTAINS WHAT MAY WELL BE THE ONLY THREE EXAMPLES OF THIS ERROR IN EXISTENCE.

This issue has been known with a blue omitted error (1509b) since at least 1976. Datz records 100-125 examples of that error. This red "United States" omitted error was previously unreported. Given the almost 50 years since the stamp was issued, it seems doubtful that others will emerge apart from the three contained in this sheet. This will be newly listed in the 2022 Scott Specialized Catalogue. We have proactively assigned it No. 1509g (the next sub-letter available).

VERY FINE MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE RARE PERF 12 JOHN PAUL JONES ISSUE.

This issue was printed by the American Bank Note Company and perforated in three different formats: Perf 11 x 12 (Scott 1789), Perf 11 All Around (Scott 1789A) and Perf 12 All Around (Scott 1789B). It is believed that the USPS was unaware that there were different perforations. The Perf 12 All Around is by far the rarest.
