"Exploring the Certified Plate Proofs"
   eBook Series    --   An Introduction

Welcome! I am about halfway through a massive project sorting through and organizing
the revenue and taxpaid certified plate proof images from the Bureau of Engraving and Printing.

I hope to start publishing soon to fund the completion of the second half of the project.
Part one involves ~25,000+ images (so far) of revenue and taxpaid stamp proof plates.

The raw images are huge and will be hard to release in bulk.... Over 250 GB!
I hope to pick out the top 2,500 or so and pack them into exhibit style ebooks.
(That alone would be 4 reams of paper if I printed it!)

Certified Plate Proofs are the final impression printed from the engraved plate.
This is one of the last quality control steps prior to the stamp production at the
Bureau of Engraving and Printing.

The plate proofs are all one of a kind, with the approval signatures of inspectors and date of certification.
The plates display a host of other production markings in the margins, including plate numbers, guidelines,
pressmen & plate finisher’s initials, siderographer’s initials, & BEP imprint.
