FINE. A RARE MINT NEVER-HINGED PLATE BLOCK OF THE 30-CENT UNWATERMARKED POSTAGE DUE ISSUE IN THE PALE ROSE SHADE.

Power Search contains only a block of four in any shade, which demonstrates how rare this is as a multiple. As a Mint N.H. plate block, it is incalculably rare. Another was offered in the Wampler sale, with much narrower selvage and similar centering. (Image)

FINE. AN EXCEEDINGLY RARE MINT NEVER-HINGED PLATE BLOCK OF THE 50-CENT UNWATERMARKED POSTAGE DUE ISSUE IN THE PALE ROSE SHADE. THIS IS ONE OF THE RAREST POSTAGE DUE PLATE BLOCKS AND ONE OF THE HIGHLIGHTS OF THE WHITPAIN COLLECTION.

The 50c unwatermarked Postage Due issue is scarce in any form of multiple. Power Search, which encompasses all of our Rarities sales plus auctions since 1992, does not even contain a block of four. A review of name sales such as Lilly, Wampler, Todd, Col. Green and others also failed to find another plate block, even in hinged condition.

Scott Retail as Mint N.H. singles. Scott Catalogue applies a 20% multiplier to a hinged plate block versus six singles, which does not adequately reflect its rarity. (Image)
