Set Description: A scarce complete set of American Presidential engravings by the US Bureau of Engraving & Printing. The Washington through Garfield (#1 - #20) portraits measure ≈ 5⅝" wide x 7⅝" tall overall on heavy off-white card stock. Within the overall card is the recessed gross die impression measuring roughly 4" wide x 5" tall, and centered in this impression is the die engraving itself in black ink. The medallions measure on average 2" wide x 2½" tall. The Arthur through Eisenhower (#21-#33) portraits measure ≈ 6" wide x 8" tall overall on heavy coated off-white card stock. Within the overall card there is no apparent recessed gross die impression and no Bureau of Engraving attribution. Centered on the card stock is the die engraving itself in black ink. The medallions measure on average 2" wide x 2¼" tall. While these are not attributed, these are the official US Bureau Engravings. Condition runs from very fine to extremely fine. The Washington overall is toned (slightly browned) as having been on the top of the pile, as is the back side of the Garfield, it also has a light scuff and two small water spots;the Eisenhower has some creasing.Other than that there is the odd light stain, smudge or corner rounding but this on the whole is quite de minimus and the set is of very fine to extremely fine quality. The set from #1-20 is likely from the late 19th century based upon paper, die impression and patina. The engravings #21-33 are much more recent - as they would have to be - and are more likely from the 1950-60's.
