BUREAU ISSUE. A DIFFICULT PLATE BLOCK15c Dark Blue (274). Top imprint and plate no. 52 block of six with wide selvage, disturbed original gum, deep rich color and proof-like impression

FINE. A RARE PLATE BLOCK OF THE 1895 15-CENT WATERMARKED BUREAU ISSUE. A DIFFICULT PLATE BLOCK TO FIND AND ESPECIALLY DESIRABLE FROM THE TOP PLATE POSITION.

The 15c was printed from two plates -- numbers 52 and 264. The latter has a different style of imprint. As an indication of rarity, the last time we sold an example from either plate was in 1999 (Mint N.H. from the bottom position). Scott Catalogue assigns a 2.7x premium to a plate block versus six singles. (Image)
