AN EXTREMELY FINE AND PRISTINE SET OF PROOF SHEETS OF THE 1851-60 DESIGNS

To the best of our knowledge, there are only two other complete sets of 1851-60 Reprint proof sheets, one on card and the other on India paper, both contained in the United States proof collection that last sold as part of the Bechtel estate. The ex-Bechtel sets were originally part of the Ackerman-Lilly proof sheets, fomred from the holdings of the Earl of Crawford (card proofs) and Henry Mandel (India paper proofs). The set we offer here is ex-Isleham (Siegel sale 662) and is now offered on behalf of The Leonard Kapiloff Foundation
