63 nhPB 327 image#327, 10c Louisiana Purchase, a magnificent quality full top margin imprint and plate no. 2106 block of six, which is a much scarcer and considerably more difficult configuration than the more typically encountered plate of four, fabulously crisp and intact, deep luxuriant color on immaculate paper, exceptionally well centered throughout, even its extra-large sheet selvage contributes to this plate's extraordinary eye appeal, pristine o.g., n.h., extremely fine; a highly desirable and rare plate block of six of the Ten Cent Louisiana Purchase commemorative.

75 nhPB 336 image#336, 6c Red orange, brilliantly fresh full top margin imprint and plate no. 4936 block of six, featuring absolutely radiant color that is completely unaffected by oxidization, exceedingly well centered and each stamp within the plate possesses uncharacteristically large margins, pristine o.g., n.h.

(Image) $525.00

SOLD for $1,200.00
Closing..Feb-11, 05:00 PM
77 ogPB 338 image#338, 10c Yellow, full top margin imprint and plate no. 4944 block of six, wonderfully bright and fresh, eye-arresting color that is particularly intense and vivid, well centered, o.g., five stamps n.h., top center stamp lightly hinged, bottom left stamp with single nibbed perforation at bottom, very fine; a striking and seldom seen full top plate block of this scarce value; ex-Todd. (Image) $800.00

78 nhPB 339 image#339, 13c Blue green, an incomparable quality full top margin imprint and plate no. 4948 block of six, being in a condition that simply cannot be improved upon, incredibly fresh and intact, perfectly centered throughout, with each stamp featuring large margins, sumptuously rich color and a prooflike impression, immaculate o.g., n.h., extremely fine; a superb plate block for the perfectionist. (Image) $850.00

SOLD for $2,600.00
Closing..Feb-11, 05:00 PM
79 ogPB 341 image#341, 50c Violet, a most remarkable quality full top imprint and plate no. 4956 block of six, being one of the few recorded top position plate blocks whose selvage has not been reduced at all, as the few examples that do exist almost exclusively have had their selvage slightly reduced or is naturally short, extraordinarily fresh and intact, outstanding centering, rich luxuriant color and a well incised impression on bright paper, o.g., couple of stamps lightly hinged, rest n.h., extremely fine; in our opinion this is the finest #341 full top plate block available, when one factors in overall freshness, centering and, most importantly, the presence of fully intact sheet selvage. (Image) $7,000.00

SOLD for $10,500.00
Closing..Feb-11, 05:00 PM
80 ogPB 342 image#342, $1.00 Violet brown, a phenomenal quality full top margin imprint and plate no. 4957 block of six, being in the finest condition imaginable for this important plate block rarity, boasting extraordinary overall physical attributes that would be impressive for any plate block, let alone one of the rarest of the 20th century, with an extra-large sheet selvage, stunning prooflike color and impression on immaculate paper, incredibly well centered throughout, with each stamp possessing uncharacteristically large margins, pristine o.g., five stamps n.h., top right stamp may have just the barest suggestion of a hinge mark (if at all), superb; by far the finest 1909 One Dollar Washington plate block in existence, neither the Todd nor the Wampler collections, the two collections by which all other plate block collections are judged, had an example that comes close to the quality of the plate block offered here from the Fogelson collection. (Image) $16,000.00

SOLD for $41,500.00
Closing..Feb-11, 05:00 PM
