I have a proof labeled "OX1P3" I know nothing about post office seals, let alone post office seal proofs. I do see that an "OX1P3" is not listed in my 2019 Scott's Specialized. There are a number of die proofs and trial colors listed - there is an OX1P2 listed which is described as "brn, plate on India paper." Is this what I have? I thought P2s were Roosevelt Die Proofs? Maybe this is an error in the catalog?

If I don't get these figured out here, I may take these out to Chicagopex in a couple weeks and see if James Lee wouldn't mind helping me out.

Thanks for the attention to my proof questions!

As an aside,
are you able to suggest what we call the lass as the icon on this item, please?
Is she "America" ? or ?

Stars on Phrygian (Liberty) cap.

Found it : Linn's
The design shows a representation of Liberty within an oval placed in the center of the phrase "officially Sealed." Though difficult to see on the label shown in Figure 2, the background of the 1877 seal consists of the repeated Latin phrase "Post Obitum," which can be translated as "dead mail" or "dead letter."
Scott OX3 identifies a new label with a new design created in 1877 for a new reason. These engraved issues, printed in chocolate brown, provided the basic design that, with occasional minor changes, appeared on U.S. official seals for 95 years.
