FINE-VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE PLATE BLOCK OF THE 50-CENT 1902 ISSUE. ESPECIALLY DESIRABLE FROM THE TOP POSITION.

As an indication of rarity, none was offered in our sales of the MLG or Saddleback collections. We have offered two others since 2000, including one from the top position. Prior to that, one has to go back to 1992 to find another in our auctions from the top position (which was the same one we offered in 2015).

With 2008 P.F. certificate
