Lewis Kaufman records only one top and three bottom plate blocks. This plate block is missing from most important collections. Todd and Lilly did not own any. The only example we located using Power Search was a bottom position offered in our 1967 Rarities sale (also ex Eno). Wampler had one from the bottom position. The fourth has not been seen for some time. (Image)
