    Nine Cent "Feuchtwanger" Encased Postage

    EP95a 9¢ "Feuchtwanger" Strip Choice About New. Long collected as part of the encased postage series, these nine cent pieces were not manufactured by Scovill under Gault's patent. They were most likely produced in New York City for the collector market in the early 1890s. There is no actual connection between this piece and Dr. Feuchtwanger. The name is simply the result of the eagle and snake vignette used on this piece being reminiscent of the 1837 Hard Times token design, which was a product of Dr. Feuchtwanger. In any event, this is one of the nicest examples we've had of this type. It exhibits just a little bit of handling.
