Was lookin through some of my Dads old stamps & I ran acrossed this one. Here we have a 1983 (#2046 in book) 20 cent Plate Block Babe Ruth stamps. The one thing different about this one, it was Never gummed on the back! See pic #3. The plate block on the right is gummed! Hmmmm,
Maybe I have something here! I'll have to find out more info on this one! Thanks for lookin!

    I would advise that the one without gum was soaked off a package and did not get canceled when used.
    This happens often as the post office went to machines and some package get thru uncanceled. If you look closely at the back you should be able to tell it was wet and dried. I've seen loads of stamps like this.

    Also, this is not a plate block. A plate block has a number on it. This is called a zip block.
