On November 29th 2012 Corbitts will sell another rare Office of Works marginal block of four. Lot 1646 is a block of the 10d Jubilee estimated at £7’000-10’000. In their previous auction, Corbitts sold a marginal block of four of the 5d Jubilee for £12’600 plus commission. Although it has a faint vertical crease, it is hinged on one stamp and has a clear 1945 RPS certificate. So expect this block to go for more!
