EXTREMELY FINE. ONE OF ONLY TWO OR THREE REMAINING BLOCKS FROM THE SOLE SHEET OF SIXTY STAMPS THAT WAS PRINTED WITH AN INVERTED FRAME.
The unique sheet of 60 was purchased by Philip Ward and sold intact to a collector, where it remained until 1973, when Kasimir Bileski purchased the sheet and broke it up into 48 singles and three blocks of four (top left, bottom left, and this top right selvage block). The current consignor purchased this block from Bileski in 1973. It contains the only selvage marking in the entire sheet, which confirms that it was the frame, not the center, that was printed upside-down.
Scott as four hinged singles $6,000.00
