Sale Number 1043, Lot Number 2209, 2c Engraved (Scott 8)2c Black, With Framelines, Trial Color Die Proof on Wove (8TC1), 2c Black, With Framelines, Trial Color Die Proof on Wove (8TC1)2c Black, With Framelines, Trial Color Die Proof on Wove (8TC1). Large margins showing four full framelines around the design, intense shade and impression, small thin spots

EXTREMELY FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE EXAMPLE OF THE 2-CENT JACKSON TRIAL COLOR PROOF WITH FULL OUTER FRAMELINES.

The various catalogue listings for the 2c trial color proofs with framelines are somewhat confusing and not altogether complete. All of the known examples of the 2c Engraved essay/proof have framelines, unlike the issued stamp. For this reason they should be classified as essays. However, the Scott, Dietz and C.S.A. Catalogues list them as trial color proofs, and we have maintained that tradition here to avoid adding to the confusion. The Black offered here is listed in Scott Catalogue, which does not list the Blue and makes no mention of framelines. The 1986 Dietz Catalogue listed this frameline proof in Black, but not Blue. The 2012 C.S.A. Catalogue expanded on Dietz and lists the Blue trial color proof with framelines (offered in this sale as lot 2319), but it eliminated this Black proof with framelines and describes the Black as "cut close no outer framelines showing" (an example of this is offered in lot 2320).

Ex Burrows and Liberman. C.S.A. Catalogue value for an example with "no outer framelines showing" $4,000.00. Scott Retail of $1,750.00 has remained unchanged for more than a decade and is outdated
