VERY FINE. AN EXCEEDINGLY RARE BLOCK OF SIX FROM PLATE ONE LATE WITH A SIGNIFICANT PORTION OF THE IMPRINT AND THE ENTIRE PLATE NUMBER. A MARVELOUS SHOWPIECE OF THE "FIRST" PLATE NUMBER.

This block is rare for a number of different reasons. The positions show a wide variety of recuts, including the rarest (51L and 52L, see Neinken page 112). The recuts are as follows: Position 41L once at top and twice at bottom with a shift, 42L once at top and twice at bottom, 43L once at top, 51L twice at top and once at bottom (only four such recuts on plate), 52L is recut twice at top and twice at bottom (only two such recuts on plate), and 53L recut once at top and twice at bottom. The plate number position is especially desirable, because it was not present on the early state of the plate.

Ex Neinken. Illustrated and described in Neinken book on pages 125-126. (Image)
