Steel 2.5 x 3 inches. This near-finished (or progress) printing plate was engraved with a single State of California distilled spirits tax stamp. The space for denomination and quantity are left blank. Beautiful state seal at upper center. Plate no. 80464. 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 term unique 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.
