    Likely Unique Fr. 1243 Block of Eight

    Fr. 1243 10¢ First Issue Block of Eight PCGS Choice About New 55PPQ.
    The matching block to the Fr. 1231 and 1282 blocks also appearing in this sale. Again, unique to our best knowledge and the only multiple we know of for this scarce Friedberg number. Identical to the other two pairs, with folds between each subject in the margin area. Interestingly, the three blocks of No Monogram, Straight Edge notes appearing here form a set of unique items missing only the Fr. 1313 block of eight. There was a 1313 block of eight in the John Jay Ford sale in May 2004, which perfectly matches the five cent, ten cent, and twenty five cent blocks offered here. Almost certainly from the same source as our three blocks. Individually, the notes have a value of approximately $2,500. We would expect this block of eight to double this realization.
