An Amazing Offering of American Bank Note Company Stamp Plates & Dies
The Unique ABNC Plates & Dies in the Continental Collection
The term “unique” is absolutely accurate here as these plates represent the actual dies used to create the finished stamp and in some cases, the trial designs that preceded them. Mostly from late 19th and early 20th Century issues, this diverse group consists of plates and dies for stamps from the United States, South and Central America and a handful of European nations.
DLRC was fortunate to acquire an entire inventory of these plates from the original holdings of the American Bank Note Company. There are no duplicates and, to our knowledge, nothing else like this collection exists anywhere. Once sold, these are irreplaceable!
Generally, these plates were not labeled with a title or image description. We have done our best to research and match as many of the plates as possible to the stamps or designs that they created in their previous lives, but we leave each item up to the buyer to research and learn more. Please take a minute to review these distinctive pieces today!
