Cuba 1956 - Scott C137-46 (EDIFIL 659-62, 666-70) Plate Blocks of 4
Unused, original gum, never hinged Plate Blocks of 4 of the 1956 Airmail Birds set. This is a short set missing only the 8c (Sc C136) value. The 5 Pesos Plate Block has a narrower left side margin. Not sure if perhaps all or some of these 5 Pesos sheets where printed on smaller size paper or if a previous owner trimmed the left margin of this block, perhaps to make it fit on a smaller stamp mount. But if that was the case, you would think that he/she would have trimmed all the other blocks in this set that are oriented in the same (portrait) way. The catalogue values for four never hinged sets of singles (No Plate Numbers!) are: Scott 2013 = US $300.00 and EDIFIL 2012 = 464,- (US $ 625.00) Since these stamps were printed in sheets of 100, plate blocks are much more scarce than those of stamps printed in sheets of 25, 40 or 50 stamps. In great condition overall with no tropical gum stains, etc. A VERY SCARCE SET IN GREAT CONDITION.
