Sale Number 1180, Lot Number 371, 1917-19 Issues (Scott 481-524)5c Carmine, Imperforate, Error (485), 5c Carmine, Imperforate, Error (485)5c Carmine, Imperforate, Error (485). Single error in block of nine, huge margins all around including part of all adjoining stamps, accompanying certificate notes small hinge at top above the center line and at bottom center in the incomplete stamp, meaning the actual block of nine could be Mint N.H., radiant color

EXTREMELY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL AND RARE MINT EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT IMPERFORATE ERROR IN A BLOCK OF NINE, WHICH IS ESSENTIALLY IN MINT NEVER-HINGED CONDITION.

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.

With 1988 and 1999 P.F. certificates. Scott Retail as Mint N.H. $24,000.00, Scott Retail as hinged
