Mint Hinged
2-5 [1856-1857 Oscars] The set of the four 1924 OFFICIAL REPRINTS of the Oscars. Mint VF with partial/disturbed gum still present as a result of extremely careful removal from their page in the 1924 handbook (examples with full, undisturbed gum should not exist in private hands). These 1924 reprints have color shades different from the scarcer 1914 reprints; these 1924 colors are: Dull Yellowish Orange (instead of Dark/Bright Orange); Dark Silvery Gray (instead of Greenish Light Gray); Blackish Blue (instead of slightly greenish Dark Blue); Dark Brownish Red (instead of Light Brownish Red). I have only had three or four sets of these in 40 years and this must be the nicest looking set that I have had, and probably the only one with any gum remaining.
