The World's Fair Collection - 1893 Columbian Issue
S
Sale Number 1055, Lot Number 2, Columbian Exposition Proofs and Specimens1c-$5.00 Columbian, "Specimen" Ovpt. Ty. E (230S-E to 245S-E), 1c-$5.00 Columbian, "Specimen" Ovpt. Ty. E (230S-E to 245S-E)1c-$5.00 Columbian, "Specimen" Ovpt. Ty. E (230S-E to 245S-E). Complete set, 1c-$1.00 original gum, $4.00 and $5.00 traces of original gum, others unused (no gum), rich colors, each with neat purplish "Specimen" handstamp, some reading up, most applied diagonally, few minor flaws as almost always

FINE-VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE COMPLETE SET OF THE 1893 COLUMBIAN ISSUE WITH SPECIMEN OVERPRINT TYPE E.

The full set of Columbians is only known with the Specimen Type E, which is handstamped in dull purple. In our opinion they are undercatalogued in Scott -- we have offered only two sets since keeping computerized records and the last set brought $23,000 hammer in our 2008 auction of the Schwartz Collection.
