    ABNC Stamp Plate Collection

    American Bank Note Company Printing Plate (Experimental Vignette)

    $3,500.00
     

    Steel 2.25 x 3.5 inches. Experimental Vignette with Proof May 1898. This unique plate is part of an exciting offering from the Continental Collection of American Bank Note Company Stamp Plates unlike virtually anything we have ever offered. The termunique is absolutely accurate here as these plates represent the actual dies used to create the finished products and in many cases trial designs along the way to a finished stamp mostly for late 19th and early 20th Century issues. 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 holding exists anywhere. Once sold these are irreplaceable. The collection consists of plates and dies for stamps that are quite diverse in nature with many issues from South and Central America, a few European nations, as well as various United States state-issued revenues from various uses. Generally, the plates are not labeled as to the title or with a description as to what the images match. We have done our best to research and match as many of the plates as possible to the stamps or designs that these were used for in their previous lives, but we leave each item up to the buyer to research and learn more. In many cases the designs include fascinating vignettes, while others include parts of the design like the framework, or portrait of a famous politician, military leader or royalty.
