Description & Analysis

As is so often the case with pre-1850s USA proofs, experts are not in agreement as to the number known. Gerry Fortin reports seven known for 1839, while Walter Breen speculated that just three are known. Current research suggests that Fortin's number is more likely correct or certainly closer to fact.

Fortin identifies two die pairs used for these proofs, both having the eighth star from the left repunched.
