10c Washington reproduction plate proof on card sheet of fifty

Scott Catalogue USA: 4P4
Description:

Item has been handstamped multiple times with blue oval "Bureau Eng. & Pri'g, Jan. 22, 1891, Specimen".

Regular stamps distributed as samples or gifts were valid for postage. To end this option for gift recipients, the Post Office Department began in 1879 to have sample stamps printed on card stock, which dignitaries received in small envelopes. The samples were so popular that the POD ordered five reprints, the last being in 1894.
