VERY FINE-EXTREMELY FINE. A RARE OPPORTUNITY TO ACQUIRE A SPECTACULAR SET OF NATIONAL BANK NOTE COMPANY 3-CENT LIBERTY SAFETY PAPER DESIGNS.

The Scott Catalogue recently corrected the listings for these essays. There had long been one design combination listed which does not exist. This set, which was always complete, now nicely matches the listings in Scott.

These beautiful essays are similar to the subsequent 1869 safety paper essays. Scott 79-E31a (red horizontal diamonds safety network) is the only one that shares the same safety paper underprint with the 1869 Pictorials (see Siegel Sale 1158, lot 4137). This 1861-68 Issue set and the 1869 Pictorial sets are among the most beautiful and unique of all United States essays and proofs

Seven different safety paper essays, representing what we believe is the complete set of all designs, all have large margins, only one is merely ample on one side, deep rich colors

VERY FINE-EXTREMELY FINE. A RARE OPPORTUNITY TO ACQUIRE A SPECTACULAR SET OF NATIONAL BANK NOTE CO. 3-CENT LIBERTY SAFETY PAPER DESIGNS.

The Scott Catalogue began listing essays in its 1992 U.S. Specialized, and since then has listed one additional design of the 3c safety papers -- 79-E31c with "2" in red circles. However we have never encountered this variety and it is the only type that has never been illustrated in Scott. In addition, the Finkelburg collection had a set of seven, without the extra essay, which he regarded as complete. While this additional variety may exist, we would like to see an example for confirmation.

These beautiful essays are similar to the subsequent 1869 safety paper essays (see lots 4124-4148 of this sale). Scott 79-E31a is the only one that shares the same safety paper underprint with the 1869 Pictorials (see lot 4137 in this sale). Both of these sets are among the most beautiful and unique of all United States essays and proofs
