    Superb First Issue Die Proof Set. Milton 1P5F.1g, 1P10F.1e, 1P25F.1f and 1P50F.1e. Each of the four notes has a razor-sharp impression from the brand-new master plate. Tom acquired these notes privately in 2001. They are extremely similar to lot 867 from our January 1997 Sale, but they lack the punch holes at the bottom of the designs. The 25¢ note has a few minor pinholes, and the rest of the set is simply magnificent. Each of the proofs are printed on very thin, soft, white India paper that exhibits the parallel striped watermarks indicative of laid paper. All four notes have the quality of printing that is usually seen only in specimen books. A gorgeous set from finished plates. The 10¢, 25¢ and 50¢ are exactly as issued, and the 5¢ has only the very minor difference of a double frameline outside the design. (Total: 4 items)
