    Fr. 1291, 1292 Milton 3R25.1, 3R25.1b 25¢ Third Issue Block of Four PMG About Uncirculated 50. Previously from our May 2005 sale of the Tom O'Mara Collection (which is noted on the PMG holder.) In that sale, it was Lot 16011, and was described, "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 [the May 2004] Stack's sale, a block of eight Fr. 1291's (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."
