Own a Seldom-Seen U.S. Stamp Essay

This 1851 3¢ essay is an important part of philatelic history.  Essays are “stamps that might have been” – designs for stamps that were presented for consideration but not used.  And because very small quantities were prepared, essays are quite collectible and missing from most collections. 

Prior to 1890, private bank-note companies competed for contracts to print US stamps.  If selected this essay would have become the design for US #11, the 3¢ imperforate Washington stamp of 1851.

Enjoy the exquisite detail and fine craftsmanship of this hard-to-find essay.
