VERY FINE. A SCARCE AND DESIABLE GROUP OF THE 5-CENT 1856 TRIAL COLOR PROOFS ON WOVE.

Collectors in pursuit of essay and proof material for the 5c 1856-60 Issue have very limited targets. There are no essays recorded and only three large die proofs are known -- one in Orange Brown and two in Black. The trial color plate proofs on wove offered here are available in several colors, including Black, of which only two are known. This set includes the scarcer Red Brown, which has often been mistaken for the issued stamp. We believe the other Scott-listed varieties of Brown (Pale, Rose and Olive) are variations on the same basic color (the Scott-listed Olive Brown is called Dark Rose Brown by Finkelburg in the set offered here).

Ex Finkelburg. One P.F. certificate accompanies
