    Fr. 1291, 1292 Milton 3R25.1, 3R25.1b 25¢ Third Issue Block of Four About New. An extremely rare and quite possibly unique Fessenden block from the left edge of the sheet. The block is made up of two Fr. 1292's at the left and two Fr. 1291's at the right. All four notes grade Choice New, as the vertical and horizontal folds in this block fall in the gutters between the notes. The block has the face plate number 74 at the intersection of the four notes. In last May's Stack's sale, a block of eight Fr. 1291'a (interestingly from the same plate 74) realized just over $6,000. Red Back Third Issue multiples are all rare, and this beautiful block should attract considerable bidder attention.
