Lot #613: 1914 T330-2 Piedmont Art Stamps Collection (5)

Description

One of the most scarce issues of its era, the 1914 Piedmont Art Stamps set was a 121-stamp version of the T205 issue of 1911, with the same basic design but on extremely delicate paper.  With 118 subjects known, new discoveries are occasionally being made.  Aside from an extraordinarily large grouping that appeared at auction earlier this year, groups rarely appear, as the cards are very scarce, and typically appear in poor condition due to scrapbook removal coupled with their delicate stock.  Collection includes five stamps as follows: Robert Byrne (GOOD condition, a few small specks of paper loss), Davy Jones (VG condition, some surface wear at the lower border), George McBride (VG/EX condition), George Suggs (VG condition, some damage to the perforations along with minor scuffing along the top), Terry Turner (VG, EX appearance with paper loss at the lower-left corner and minor additional wear along the left edge).  Five stamps total, from a very scarce and condition-sensitive issue.
