Enjoy the Remarkable Details of the 1861 Franklin –
For a Fraction of the Cost

Meticulous engravers created this striking 30¢ Franklin Plate Proof 145 years ago to demonstrate the quality of their craftsmanship.  Now you can enjoy the beauty of U.S. #71 – which retails in Mystic’s U.S. Stamp Catalog for over $1,250.00 – for a fraction of its cost with this striking Plate Proof.
The fine texture and bright hues of India paper bring out the finest details of the classically engraved design.  Careful attention to details – such as wiping the plate clean of ink between printings – assures a clean, crisp impression seldom seen in mass-produced postage stamps.
Historic and affordable, the U.S. #71 Plate Proof represents an important step in philatelic history.
