VERY FINE. AN EXCEEDINGLY RARE LARGE DIE TRIAL COLOR PROOF FOR THE $500.00 LARGE PERSIAN RUG. ESPECIALLY DESIRABLE WITH THE IMPRINTS AT SIDES. A MAGNIFICENT SHOWPIECE.

We are aware of only one other in this color with the imprints. It was offered in the 2008 Spink Shreves auction of the Cunliffe Revenues, where it realized $26,000 hammer. Scott Catalogue prices this at $5,000.00 but notes "full-size proofs on full-size card bring substantial premiums above the catalogue values listed"

Sale Number 967, Lot Number 5246, Revenues (Second and Later  Issues)$500.00 Black, Master Die Proof on India (R133TC), $500.00 Black, Master Die Proof on India (R133TC)$500.00 Black, Master Die Proof on India (R133TC). On card, stamp size, detailed impression

EXTREMELY FINE. AN INCREDIBLY RARE MASTER DIE TRIAL COLOR PROOF OF THE $500.00 "LARGE PERSIAN RUG". THIS IS THE ONLY EXAMPLE AVAILABLE TO COLLECTORS.

According to The Legendary Persian Rug by Thomas C. Kingsley, this single-color impression was made to insure that registration of the three colors were in perfect alignment. Due to the intricate nature of the design, registration was very important (unlike some other bi- or tri-color stamps where there is a margin for error). One other example is known. It is part of the Clarence Eagle Collection, which is part of the Smithsonian's National Postal Museum.

Ex Joyce and Kingsley.

VERY FINE AND CHOICE. AN EXCEEDINGLY RARE TRIAL COLOR PROOF ON BOND FOR THE $500.00 LARGE PERSIAN RUG. VERY FEW ARE KNOWN.

In our opinion this trial color proof is undervalued in Scott. Aside from the only example in Black available to collectors (sold in Siegel Sale 865 for $12,000 hammer), this is the first Trial Color we have offered since keeping computerized records.
