VERY FINE-EXTREMELY FINE. AN INCALULABLY RARE COMPLETE SET OF ALL COLORS AND ALL DENOMINATIONS FOR THE OFFICIAL ATLANTA TRIAL COLOR PROOFS. THIS IS THE FIRST COMPLETE SET WE HAVE OFFERED SINCE KEEPING COMPUTERIZED RECORDS. A PHENOMENAL OPPORTUNITY.

The Atlanta trial color plate proofs on card were prepared for display at the 1881 International Cotton Exposition in Atlanta. Only one sheet in each color was printed.

A Power Search review of our auctions indicates the rarity of this intact set. Previous offerings by our firm are either nearly complete (such as the Sheriff set) or substantially incomplete to the point where they are offered by department. A collector normally must comb countless auctions looking for parts in order to try and assemble the complete set. The dollar-value State Departments, which catalogue $1,000.00 apiece, are also almost never seen as full sets.
