VERY FINE. ONE OF TWO RECORDED SETS OF BLOCKS OF THE 2-CENT 1863 ATLANTA TRIAL COLOR PLATE PROOFS. A WONDERFUL BLACK JACK PROOF RARITY.

The Atlanta trial color plate proofs on card were prepared for display at the 1881 International Cotton Exposition in Atlanta. Only one sheet of 50 in each color was printed. The sheets were somehow acquired by James A. Petrie of Phillipsburg, New Jersey, at the close of the exposition (along with the 1869 invert card proof sheets). Petrie claimed that he rescued the proofs just before they were to be burned. They were cut up into one set of blocks of eight, two sets of blocks of four, pairs and singles.

Ex Finkelburg. The Scott value as singles does not do justice to the rarity of this set of blocks
