    Extraordinary Block Perforated Horizontally Only

    Fr. 1229 Milton 1R5.2e 5¢ First Issue Block of Nine. PMG About Uncirculated 55 EPQ.
    Only the second public auction appearance of this incredible block of nine notes that are perforated horizontally but not vertically. The selvage is retained on the left and bottom indicating this block is from the bottom left of the sheet. The notes themselves are sharply printed on buff colored paper and have great eye appeal. Face plate number 1 is printed in the left selvage. Although a few single examples are known, besides this block, a strip of four that was in the Milt Friedberg and Mayer sales and a strip of three in Ford XIX are the only known multiples of this error. The block itself was not mentioned in any fractional references until the Milton Friedberg Encyclopedia. Valentine makes note of strips of three and four but no larger multiples.
