    Description

    Milton 1DP25F.1 and 1DP25R.1 25¢ First Issue Trial-Color Die Proof Pair Choice New. This lovely and irreplaceable unique pair first came to light in the October 20, 1904 sale of the Pick Collection held by S.H.& H. Chapman. Both the face and back have narrow margins and are printed in black ink on soft white paper. Both are deeply impressed through the paper, leaving a heavy embossing effect plainly visible on the back of each uniface piece. These were apparently pulled from finished plates, as all the design elements are identical to the issued notes. Each has an incredible sharpness of impression that simply does not exist on regular-issue notes or normal Specimen printings. Only when truly landmark collections reach the market are exquisite rarities like this pair available to a new generation of collectors.
