3048 ogbl Image30c Columbian (239). Top imprint, plate no. 59 and letter "N" at right block of eight, original gum with some mount glazing throughout, deep rich color and proof-like impression, choice centering, some perf separations at left

EXTREMELY FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE PLATE BLOCK OF EIGHT OF THE 30-CENT COLUMBIAN ISSUE.

A Power Search review (which includes all of our Rarities sales) indicates that we have only sold approximately 14 plate blocks (of six or eight) plus a block of 18 containing two imprint and plate number multiples, which has probably been broken. Of these, several had thin spots or small tears. Most are not as well centered as the block offered here.

3049 ogbl Image50c Columbian (240). Bottom left corner imprint, plate no. 77 and letter "S" at left block of ten, original gum which shows very slight signs of mount disturbance, deep rich color, extraordinarily choice centering and margins

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERBLY-CENTERED PLATE BLOCK OF THE 50-CENT COLUMBIAN ISSUE, AND AN IMPRESSIVE LARGE MULTIPLE.

The 50c Columbian is the first value of the series that was printed in much more limited quantities, with 243,750 copies versus more than 617,000 of the 30c and millions of each of the 1c-15c (or more than a billion in the case of the 2c). It is scarce as a plate block, and it exists only from the bottom position due to the way the sheets from the 100-subject plates were cut and perforated (the $4.00 also exists only as a bottom plate block -- all the other Columbian values have top and bottom plate blocks).

With 2004 P.F. certificate as Mint N.H.. Scott value as plate block of eight and two singles (Image)

3050 ogbl Image$1.00 Columbian (241). Bottom imprint, plate no. 93 and letter "W" at right block of eight, slightly disturbed original gum from mount, deep rich color, perf separations expertly reinforced

FINE-VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE IMPRINT AND PLATE NUMBER BLOCK OF EIGHT OF THE $1.00 COLUMBIAN.

According to Brookman, only 55,050 copies of the $1.00 Columbian were issued. It was sold out before all of the other dollar values, probably because it was the most affordable of the dollar-value stamps. Speculation soon drove the price to $5.00 but it soon fell again, to about $1.50.

The theme of the stamp, Isabella pledging her jewels to finance Columbus's voyage, is known to most fifth-grade students who study the voyage of Columbus. However, the offer was never accepted, as financing was found elsewhere. Perhaps a dozen plate blocks of eight exist for the $1.00 Columbian.
