A review using Power Search found only the intact pane of 45 with plate numbers at right and bottom. Wampler had a Q12 plate block from the top position and another from the top with part imprint. It is safe to say that the MLG collection contains a majority of the world's supply. (Image)

FINE. AN EXTREMELY RARE PLATE BLOCK OF THE $1.00 PARCEL POST WHICH SHOWS BOTH THE PLATE NUMBER AND DENOMINATION IMPRINT. ONE OF THE GREATEST RARITIES OF THE PARCEL POST ISSUES.

The Parcel Post issues were printed from plates of 180 which consisted of four panes of 45. According to Johl, the uniform color of the twelve denominations led to confusion on the part of postal clerks, who complained that they were forced to examine the stamps in detail to ensure they had the correct values. In response, on January 27, 1913, large capital letters were added to the margins near each plate number. At top and bottom the imprint is in the selvage next to the plate number, on the sides it is separated by a stamp with blank selvage. This plate block comes from the top left pane. (Image)
