Session Eight (lots 3412-3672): Thursday, October 22, 2020, at 1:30pm continued...

1925 and Later Issues (Scott 628-1789B) continued...
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
3576° nhbl Image$5.00 Red Brown & Black (834a). Mint N.H. top double plate nos. 22166/22169 and arrow block of four, deep rich colors in this very distinctive error shade, essentially perfect centering

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB AND VERY RARE MINT NEVER-HINGED PLATE BLOCK OF THE $5.00 PRESIDENTIAL ISSUE IN THE RED BROWN AND BLACK COLOR, WITH PERFECT CENTERING. THIS IS ONLY THE SECOND IN MINT NEVER-HINGED CONDITION WE HAVE OFFERED IN DECADES.

Roland E. Rustad states in his book The Prexies that only twelve plate blocks of this distinctive color error are recorded (p. 329). We have no reason to doubt that count but we have not seen anywhere close to that many. Before this Mint N.H. plate block, we have offered a Mint N.H. plate block in our 2020 Rarities of the World sale and a no-gum plate block (four separate times) since 1989.

With 2011 P.F. and 2017 P.S.E. certificates (XF-Superb 95; blocks unpriced in SMQ) (Image)

3578 nh Image15c John Paul Jones, Perf 12 (1789B). Mint N.H., fresh colors

VERY FINE MINT NEVER-HINGED EXAMPLE OF THE RARE PERF 12 JOHN PAUL JONES ISSUE.

This issue was printed by the American Bank Note Company and perforated in three different formats: Perf 11 x 12 (Scott 1789), Perf 11 All Around (Scott 1789A) and Perf 12 All Around (Scott 1789B). It is believed that the USPS was unaware that there were different perforations. The Perf 12 All Around is by far the rarest.
