    HB-026 EP-183 a Scott-unl. Reed-AP90 90¢ Take Ayer's Pills Extremely Fine.
    Numerical grade: 80case.85stamp.55mica. = 220

    The case is a natural, light brass with golden overtones and tiny traces of silver behind a few of the letters. The stamp is very fresh and centered a little to the lower left, and the mica has some crazes and cracks, particularly toward the bottom center, but they do little to block the view of the beautiful stamp. Listed as an R-9 (two to four known) in Reed, with the comment "2 known?" This piece was previously in the Massachusetts Historical Society Collection, which was auctioned by Stack's in May of 1971. The only other known example was sold at auction for $13,000 in June of 1980 by Fractional Currency Inc. It is now in the ANA museum.
    From The Frederick Mayer Collection


    Estimate: $15,000 - up.
