On 115 x 77mm card with full die sinkage, couple faint toned spots

VERY FINE. AN EXTREMELY RARE 10-CENT 1869 ESSAY WITH THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE VIGNETTE ENGRAVED BY JAMES SMILLIE, WHICH WAS ULTIMATELY USED FOR THE 24-CENT DENOMINATION.

This vignette is a miniature engraving by James Smillie, based on a painting by Trumbull which hangs in the Rotunda of the Capitol. Contrary to popular belief, the scene depicted by Trumbull is not the signing ceremony, but the presentation of the draft. It has been written that the 30c stamp was changed from the Surrender of Burgoyne to the Eagle, Shield and Flags design to avoid offending the British. If true, it seems odd that officials would choose to use the Declaration of Independence "1776" design for the 24c stamp, which was far more likely to adorn mail to England (the basic rate was 12c).

There were three dies prepared for the 15c 1869 Issue with large numerals, which vary in the area surrounding the blank space in which the vignette was printed. What philatelists call Die III (Type III) is probably the first one produced, because it is the simplest of the three. It was used for the 1875 Re-Issue printing. Die I (Type I) has background lines added to the space, and Die II (Type II) has the diamond-shaped ornament added to the top.
