191 nhPB 518b image#518b, $1.00 Deep brown, an immensely rare top margin imprint, letter "A" and plate no. 5782 block of six of this highly collectable and distinctive shade variety, extraordinarily fresh, gorgeous intense and true color, prooflike impression on especially bright paper, well centered, o.g., n.h., top right stamp with natural vertical paper fold, very fine and exceptionally choice.This is one of only two certified plate blocks of this rare shade, and the first to come on the market in over a decade. The deep brown shade is one of the most frequently misunderstood of all philatelic colors, as most collectors would assume that it is simply a "deeper" shade of the normal $1.00 color, which is identified in the Scott catalog as "violet brown". And it is the absence of any "violet" overtones that is key to positively identifying and classifying this as the extremely rare deep brown shade. There is no question that this is an exemplary example of this important shade variety.A plate block of the deep brown shade is unlisted in the Scott catalog. Never hinged singles are priced at $3,100.00 each - resulting in a total catalog value as singles alone of $18,600.00. When this extraordinary plate block made its last appearance at auction in October 1992 (The "Connoisseur" Collection sale, Superior Galleries) it realized $21,000.00, plus the 10% buyer's premium, after spirited bidding. An exciting and infrequent opportunity to acquire one of the most important plate number blocks of the 20th century. Accompanied by a 1991 PSE certificate. (Image) Est. 20,000-30,000

SOLD for $30,000.00

(Image) $4,250.00

SOLD for $4,000.00
