14 E ImageNational Bank Note Co., 3c Rose, Progressive Die Essay on India (65-E16, unlisted).

17 TC Image3c Black, Large Die Trial Color Proof on Thick Glazed Card (65TC1af). 55 x 73mm with albino die no. 441 and imprint at bottom, exceptional impression pops off this type of shiny card

VERY FINE. THIS IS THE ONLY RECORDED 1861 3-CENT BLACK LARGE DIE TRIAL COLOR PROOF ON GLAZED CARD.

There are a variety of trial colors for the 3c 1861 issued design listed in Scott. All but this single example are printed on India paper. Despite that fact, Scott prices this the same as the India paper proofs.

19 P Image3c Scarlet, Large Die Trial Color Proof on India (74TC1a). Die sunk on 66 x 64mm card with full die sinkage, die no. 441 and albino imprint at bottom, beautiful bright color in this distinct shade

VERY FINE. ONE OF ONLY THREE RECORDED EXAMPLES OF THE 3-CENT SCARLET TRIAL COLOR IN LARGE DIE PROOF FORM.

We feel this is of greater importance than the other trial colors for the 3c design, as this color was also used to print the elusive Scott 74. This is one of only three recorded examples and the first we have encountered (Image)
