Sale Number 1195, Lot Number 187, Essays for Re-Use Prevention: Unknown AuthorsUnknown Author, 2c Dull Red Violet, "U.S. Postage" Re-Use Prevention Essay (79-E1), Unknown Author, 2c Dull Red Violet, "U.S. Postage" Re-Use Prevention Essay (79-E1)Unknown Author, 2c Dull Red Violet, "U.S. Postage" Re-Use Prevention Essay (79-E1). Unfolded design for re-use prevention, original gum, single h.r., small internal tear

VERY FINE AND RARE. ONLY A HANDFUL OF INTACT EXAMPLES OF THESE RE-USE PREVENTION ESSAYS ARE RECORDED.

The inventor of these designs is unknown, but they share characteristics with essays produced by George Bowlsby (under Patent no. 51,782). The design of the stamp is such that it was intended to be affixed to a cover folded. The postmaster would then remove part of the stamp, exposing punched out or different colored numerals underneath. The background of the design is also scored so that any attempt to remove a cancel or the stamp from the cover would result in its breaking apart. This is a particularly choice example as it shows the complete unfolded design and retains the "U.S. Postage" tablet at both top and bottom. Some other examples we have seen were missing the top tablet
