EXTREMELY FINE. ONE OF FOUR REPORTED $500.00 "LARGE PERSIAN RUG" STAMPS WITH SHEET MARGINS AND IMPRINTS.

The initials "E.C." on this stamp belong to Erastus Corning, from whose estate both of the Large and Small "Persian Rug" imprint examples originate. The $200.00 Small Persian Rug was sold in our Zoellner Revenue sale (Sep. 2000), where it realized $32,500 with a Scott Retail value of $5,000. According to Dr. Thomas Kingsley, the stamps were purchased by Mr. Corning's estate to pay the tax on his will, but the stamps were never attached to the will (this is why they retain their original gum).
