EXTREMELY FINE. A REMARKABLY PRISTINE SET OF THE TRANS-MISSISSIPPI BI-COLOR ESSAYS.
There were six different die proof printings from May 31, 1898, to August 4, 1899 -- two were definitely bicolored (166 total), and it is possible the January 23, 1899, printing of 50 proofs was also bicolored
VERY FINE. A RARE SMALL DIE TRIAL COLOR PROOF FOR THE 50-CENT TRANS-MISSISSIPPI.
This is the only trial color proof we have offered since keeping computerized records. The Scott Catalogue lists this on India, but it should be on wove, as all P2's are on wove
A SCARCE SET OF THE 1898 TRANS-MISSISSIPPI SMALL DIE PROOFS FROM A ROOSEVELT PRESENTATION ALBUM.
