VERY FINE-EXTREMELY FINE. A RARE GROUP OF THE ONE-CENT TO 90-CENT OFFICIAL ATLANTA TRIAL COLOR PROOFS.
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.
This set is complete except for the 28 dollar-value State Department stamps, which catalogue $1,000.00 apiece. Most 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.
