HISTORY AND COMMENTARY

The $1.00 Columbian, depicting "Isabella Pledging Her Jewels," is based on a painting by Antonio Munce-Degrain. The vignette was engraved by Robert Savage, the frame by Douglas S. Ronaldson and the lettering by George H. Seymour. 55,050 stamps were printed and an unknown number were destroyed and never issued. The $1.00 is very rare as a top plate block. Most plate blocks are from the bottom position, and many have narrow selvage. Notable name sales such as Fogelson, Eno, "MLG" and Wampler, did not contain any top plate blocks. The Weill Stock sale contained a sheet of 100, with two bottom plate blocks.
