VERY FINE. A RARE ORIGINAL-GUM IMPRINT BLOCK OF FOUR OF THE $1.00 1894 UNWATERMARKED BUREAU TYPES I AND II.

The $1.00 1894-95 Issue was printed in a sheet of 200 comprised of two panes of 100. The left pane and left half of the right pane were Type I, while the right half of the right pane was Type II. Plate number strips from the right pane consist of one Type I and two Type II stamps. Combination pairs and strips, which exist only between the fifth and sixth columns, are extremely rare and desirable. Plate number strips and blocks are of even greater rarity, and only a small number of the 1894 unwatermarked issue exist. According to Bartels and Brookman, only 8,762 of the Type II were issued in total, and of these only a small fraction (about 20%) come from the positions that could yield combination pairs. Scott Catalogue goes so far as to price this as a block, as well as as a pair. Only three plate blocks are known, one of which realized $65,000 hammer in our recent MLG sale. (Image)

VERY FINE. A RARE ORIGINAL-GUM BLOCK OF FOUR OF THE $1.00 TYPE II UNWATERMARKED BUREAU ISSUE. VERY FEW MULTIPLES ARE KNOWN.

According to Brookman, the Type II stamps, with circles complete around the bottom left denomination, were not discovered until several years after the stamp was issued. Its discoverer was the custodian of the National stamp collection, who determined that the Type II stamps are found on only five rows of the plate. Brookman estimated that only 8,762 were distributed. We have only offered one other block of four and the remarkable block of six (ex Whitman) since 1997.

Scott Catalogue assigns a paltry $700.00 premium for the block of four versus four singles. (Image)
