It has original gum that has "NEVER" been Hinged. There is a, hard to see, insignificant gum disturbance that intermittently runs across the top stamps and a five hole perf separation in the top left vertical selvage. The plate number is 5719 and it has an "A" and the Bureau of Engraving & Printing Imprint in the selvage. The pictures below say it better then I can. Will continue to grow in value and demand.
Well below catalog value and there is no reserve. This is a very nice plate block of 6 stamps. Stamps make great gifts and I'll send these to the address of your choice.
