Exceptional Schernikow reprints come complete with an intriguing stamp story!  The prestigious firm of Toppan, Carpenter & Co. worked with the Philadelphia Bank Note Company to produce dies for a 3¢ Washington stamp essay.  The design wasn’t used – until 1903, when enterprising Ernest Schernikow purchased the dies in a bankruptcy sale.  He created these striking reprints to show various steps in stamp production.  Exceptionally beautiful philatelic items with interesting history – for a fraction of the cost of standard essays. Place your order today and we'll send you one of these neat essays for your collection.
