295 E ImageNational Bank Note Co., 3c Liberty, Black Green on White Wove, Safety Paper Underprint Essays (79-E31a, b, c, d, e, f, g). Seven different safety paper essays, representing the complete set of all designs, all have large margins, only one is touched on one side, deep rich colors, couple minor translucencies

VERY FINE-EXTREMELY FINE. A RARE OPPORTUNITY TO ACQUIRE A SPECTACULAR SET OF NATIONAL BANK NOTE COMPANY 3-CENT LIBERTY SAFETY PAPER DESIGNS.

The Scott Catalogue recently corrected the listings for these essays. There had long been one design combination listed which does not exist. This set, which was always complete, now nicely matches the listings in Scott.

These beautiful essays are similar to the subsequent 1869 safety paper essays. Scott 79-E31a (red horizontal diamonds safety network) is the only one that shares the same safety paper underprint with the 1869 Pictorials (see Siegel Sale 1158, lot 4137). This 1861-68 Issue set and the 1869 Pictorial sets are among the most beautiful and unique of all United States essays and proofs (Image)
