Sale Number 1228, Lot Number 34, Plate Proofs, Proof Balance, One of only two sets of 1847 Reproduction Atlanta trial color proof blocks of four

5¢ and 10¢ 1847 Reproductions, Atlanta Trial Color Proofs on Card (3TC4, 4TC4), both denominations in all five colors in blocks of four, vivid colors, each with ample to full margins--these were carefully cut from the sheets without any margins touching the designs

Very Fine. A beautiful and rare set of blocks of four of the Atlanta Trial Color Proofs for the 5¢ and 10¢ 1847 Reproductions.

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. The set of blocks of eight was offered in our Sale 1040 in 2013 and realized $27,000 hammer. The other set of blocks of four, ex Middendorf, was offered in our Sale 1209 and realized $17,000 hammer. Both realizations for the other existing blocks exceeded Scott Catalogue value.

Ex Duane B. Garrett ("Elite"). Scott value $12,000.00 as singles.
