Accompanied by a 2021 Greene Foundation certificate which states “tiny black specks on lower left copy” and “missing perforation tips on a few stamps occurred during production process”. These two insignificant points in no way deter from the great rarity of this block. Rsv. $29,000. Unitrade CV$44,000.
