CSA 4, 5¢ blue, Stone 2 gutter block of six, unused, no gum,with multiple faults as usual for such larger blocks. A scarce position piece easily plated from the top left down as positions 41 and 42, 1 and 2, 11 and 12. You would think from a quick glance that the widely spaced bottom two pairs would produce the gutter, but in fact positions 1 and 2 are in the center which means the actual position break is above them. There are some very nice varieties here as both positions 1 and 2 both show clipped transfers at the lower left and position 12 shows the constant easily recognized over-inked upper right corner variety. Scott Catalog Value as block and pair is $1,925++.  A wonderful chance to study plating and positions. $1,250.
