THE UNIQUE BICOLOR COTTON PLANT MODEL DESIGNED BY A NORTHERN FIRM TO PRINT CONFEDERATE STAMPS PRIOR TO LINCOLN'S PROHIBITION AGAINST TRADING WITH THE ENEMY. FROM THE OFFUTT ARCHIVE.

An article by the late Calvet M. Hahn in the March-April 2000 Confederate Philatelist discusses the early Confederate essays. Several northern firms submitted proposals to print the new Confederate stamps in March 1861, prior to Lincoln's April 18th proclamation forbidding trading with the enemy. Hahn attributes this essay to the New Jersey firm of Jabez W. Hayes, whose proposal described stamps printed in two colors. Hayes held a patent for a printing machine that operated like a coin press. The essays were found in a book assembled by H. St. George Offutt, who was chief of the Contract Bureau.
