Scott #112P3-122P3 [1869 1c-90c Pictorials] COMPLETE SET OF 10 (#112P3-117P3, 119P3-122P3) Plate Proofs on India Paper. XF appearance, all with vibrant colors and all with large to huge margins. [India paper plate proofs of #118, the 15c Type I, do not exist, thus this is the complete set of 10.] The 6c has an internal natural bend; the 24c has a couple "sand holes", pinholes caused by natural inclusions such as grains of sand in the paper that have since fallen out; the 90c has a natural translucent inclusion in the top margin. That range of minor problems is not unusual on these plate proofs. A beautiful set showing just how wonderful these stamp designs and engravers art were intended to look. A seldom offered set; the only such set I have had in 48 years. (Scott 2022 value $855.)

"American Letter Mail Co." LOCAL POST stamps set of six so-called "trial color proofs". Mounted (hinged) on small printed slip in the manner they seem to have been distributed. Despite the text on the slip, these are actually reprints. See Scott #5L1 footnote. Six colors: Red-Violet, Ultramarine, Red, Green, Brown, and Orange. No gum as "issued". While these are certainly not rare, they are quite interesting and unusual. I have seen them sell for $35 on up to $100 per set!
