According to Herman Herst, these are genuine stamps privately rouletted by Pittsburgh stamp dealer, J. Hull Wilson, who used them on his own correspondence. At some point he used his remaining stock as collateral on a bank loan, which he eventually defaulted on. As a result, the bank seized the stamps, possibly using some of them for their own correspondence, but selling the bulk of them to the Nassau Stamp Co., who then sold them to Herst.
