    EP95a 9¢ "Feuchtwanger" Strip Choice About New.
    An example with a nice appearance on both sides, the "Feuchtwanger" strips as they are known have long been included in Encased Postage collections although they 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. Despite the name, there is no actual connection between the pieces and Dr. Feuchtwanger. The name is simply the result of the fact that the eagle and snake vignette that were used are 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. Three 3¢ stamps featuring a left facing portrait of George Washington are contained in the strip.
