    Fr. 1227 3¢ Third Issue Block of Twenty PCGS Apparent Very Fine 30.
    At one time during the 1960's and 70's multiples of dark background 3¢ notes were quite rare...over the years more surfaced and while still very scarce, the "rare" comment has left the building. This block of 20 (one column of 5 notes from a full sheet) would have been an eye opener back in the day.... depressingly, most of the eyes that would have been thrilled then have been permanently closed for decades. It has been accurately graded with an italic 30 and a laundry list of minor defects. We have sold this impressive block once before in this same holder. It realized $900 in our 2018 FUN auction.
