Now available from the Bureau of Engraving and Printing is the 2013 Peace Intaglio Print, the first of three cards in the Ideals in Allegory series.
This series for 2013 is dedicated to female allegorical figures representing peace, justice and liberty.
"This print Peace features an exquisite compilation of unique engraved allegorical vignettes focusing on the age-old art of intaglio printing," the BEP’s website describes.
Priced at $22.50, the Peace Intaglio Print includes three vignettes. These three decorative designs are seen to the left, right and bottom center of the card.
To the left is the Vignette – Peace (Miscellaneous Die #3283). Engraved by the American Bank Note Company in 1863, it was used on bonds and interest notes in 1863 and 1864. It was also on a 1 pound snuff stamp in 1872.
