2c Carmine Rose, Ty. III, Perf 10 on Left Side (546a). Top margin block of eight with hollow star, both stamps at left the variety, brilliant color, small h.r.
FINE-VERY FINE. THE UNIQUE TOP
SHEET-MARGIN BLOCK CONTAINING TWO EXAMPLES OF THE 2-CENT 1921 ROTARY PRINTING PERFORATED 10 ON THE LEFT SIDE. A REMARKABLE SHOWPIECE.
Our records of Scott 546a contain this unique unused block, another block containing two examples of the error
(which we believe has since been broken into two strips of four), and one used single, for a total of four unused and one used. We believe that the strip of four in our records (ex Grunin and Schilling) comes from a block mentioned in a 1956 letter
from C. B. Durland to Eugene Costales. The block offered here is important, as it identifies the location on the sheet where the error occurred.
With 1967 and 2003 P.F. certificates and accompanied by letter from C. B. Durland (a previous owner
of this block) to Eugene Costales. Scott Retail as two unused singles (Image)
