Lot Sym. Lot Description  
224 E Image1861, 5c Green & Black, Washington's Portrait, Model Mounted on Card (Dietz E-1). Attributed to the American Bank Note Company or more recently to Jabez W. Hayes

THE UNIQUE WASHINGTON BICOLORED MODEL, DESIGNED BY A NORTHERN FIRM TO PRINT CONFEDERATE STAMPS PRIOR TO LINCOLN'S PROHIBITION AGAINST TRADING WITH THE ENEMY. FROM THE OFFUTT ARCHIVE.

An article by the late Calvet M. Hahn in March-April 2000 Confederate Philatelist discusses the early Confederate essays. Several northern firms submitted proposals to print the new Confederate stamps in March 1861, prior to Lincoln's April 18th proclamation forbidding trading with the enemy. Hahn attributes this essay to the New Jersey firm of Jabez W. Hayes, whose proposal described stamps printed in two colors. Hayes held a patent for a printing machine that operated like a coin press. The essays were found in a book assembled by H. St. George Offutt, who was chief of the Contract Bureau.

THE UNIQUE MANOUVRIER WASH DRAWINGS FROM THE OFFUTT ARCHIVE.

This set of wash drawings, reportedly produced by Jules Manouvrier of New Orleans, depict idyllic scenes of the South. Manouvrier printed bank notes for Farmer's Bank of Alabama, which are similar to the wash drawings depicted here. Farmer's Bank was founded by a Confederate official. The essay was found in a book assembled by H. St. George Offutt, who was chief of the Contract Bureau.

227 E Image1861, 5c Liberty Head in Circle, Engraved and Partly Hand-Drawn Essay in Black on Card (Dietz E-5). Previously attributed to Manouvrier of New Orleans, but more likely submitted by the National Bank Note Company, pencil used for "Confederate States of America" and spandrels in corners, manuscript at left reads "New Orleans, Unknown" (not "Manouvrier" as sometimes quoted), insignificant card thins from mounting removal

THE UNIQUE LIBERTY HEAD ESSAY FROM THE OFFUTT ARCHIVE, BELIEVED TO HAVE BEEN CREATED BY THE NATIONAL BANK NOTE COMPANY.

An article by the late Calvet M. Hahn in March-April 2000 Confederate Philatelist discusses this unique essay. It is accompanied by a Bank of Savannah $1.00 note showing the same Liberty vignette. This note was printed by National Bank Note Co., a New York firm, under its contract of June 28, 1860. Hahn speculates that this essay, from the Offutt proof book, was an unrecorded attempt by National Bank Note Co. to bid to supply stamps to the south prior to Lincoln's directive to cease trading with the enemy.

228 E Image1861, 2c Corn, 5c Wheat and 10c Cotton, Black Lithographed Essays, A. Hoen & Co., Richmond Va. (Dietz E-6, E-7, E-8). Each has margins all around, negligible adherence and thinning in card not affecting appearance

A VERY FINE AND EXTREMELY RARE COMPLETE SET OF THE HOEN & CO. LITHOGRAPHED ESSAYS.

An article by the late Calvet M. Hahn in March-April 2000 Confederate Philatelist discusses this set. The firm A. Hoen & Co. of Baltimore printed these essays. Reagan considered the Hoen proposal very promising, but it would depend on Maryland joining the Confederacy, which of course never happened. A close comparison with the Dietz set illustrated in his 1929 book leads us to believe this set is not from the Offutt archive.
