    Pacific Steam Navigation Co 1857: Perkins Bacon Plate Proofs (6) imperforate on thick card paper, in issued and unissued colours for the 1 real and 2 reales values, printed in blue, red-brown and in black. Some slight aging on the blue examples but an exceptional group and very rare.rnNote: The red-brown examples were printed after those printed in blue. This can be evidenced by the red-brown examples showing elements of blue spotting especially noticeable around the value tablets where the plate had been insufficiently cleaned.
