8 FACSIMILES (O68-O71) STATE DEPARTMENT OFFICIALS $2-$20

8 EXAMPLES OF FACSIMILES OF THE HIGH VALUES ($2-$20) OF THE 1873 DEPARTMENT OF STATE OFFICIALS.
THE DEPICT WILLIAM H SEWARD AND ARE NG
AS DESCRIBED BELOW -
$2 -$20 WITH THE WORD FACSIMILE ERASED FROM STAMP. IT NORMALLY PRINTED CURVED ABOVE THE WORD STATE AT TOP OF STAMPS. OBVIOUSLY INTENDED TO DEFRAUD SOMEONE.
THE STAMPS BELOW ARE TWO VARIETIES OF THE FACSIMILIES-
$5-$10 WITH WORD FACSIMILE OVER PRINTED ABOVE THE HEAD OF SEWARD
$10-$20 WITH WORD FACSIMILE PRINTED CURVED ABOVE THE WORD STATE AT TOP OF STAMPS.
I HAVE NO IDEA OF THE WORTH OF THESE.
