VERY FINE AND EXTREMELY RARE PROOF OF THE 15-CENT 1869 DIE II FRAME.

There were three dies prepared for the 15c 1869 Issue with large numerals, which vary in the area surrounding the blank space in which the vignette was printed. What philatelists call Die III (Type III) is probably the first one produced, because it is the simplest of the three. It was used for the 1875 Re-Issue printing. Die I (Type I) has background lines added to the space, and Die II (Type II) has the diamond-shaped ornament added to the top, as seen in the design of this proof.
