ONLY FIVE SETS OF THE 1915 PANAMA-PACIFIC SMALL DIE PROOFS ARE RECORDED.
In 1915, for the Panama-Pacific Exposition, a limited special printing of 413 different small die proofs was created. Printed on yellowish wove paper, they are extremely scarce. At most five sets were produced. This is the first set of the 1847 Issue proofs we have offered.
