VERY FINE. A SCARCE COMPLETE SET OF THE 10-CENT LINCOLN DIE ESSAY ON IVORY PAPER.
Rare as a complete set. Ex Ainsworth.
FRESH AND VERY FINE. A RARE COMPLETE SET OF THE 10-CENT LINCOLN ESSAY ON WHITE THIN BOND.
It is extremely difficult to assemble a complete set such as the one offered here, with all properly identified.
VERY FINE. AN EXCEEDINGLY RARE EXAMPLE OF THE 10-CENT LINCOLN 1869 PICTORIAL ISSUE ESSAY ON VEINED MARBLED CARD.
This is the only example in black on green marbled card of which we are aware. We have offered only one other color combination in the past 20 years of our auctions. The 1989 Lopez sale contained two in different colors and the 1990 Brazer sale contained one in Red Orange (offered in the following lot), leading us to believe that each is unique.
VERY FINE AND CHOICE. WE BELIEVE THAT EACH OF THE COLORS FOR THE 10-CENT LINCOLN DIE ESSAY ON VEINED MARBLED CARD ARE UNIQUE.
Ex Earl of Crawford, Brazer and Ainsworth.
