DescriptionHB-10 EP-96a Scott-5 Reed-AC10LA 10¢ Ayer's Cathartic Pills Long Arrows Extremely Fine.
Numerical grade: 80case.70stamp.70mica. = 220
Listed as an R-9 by Reed and simply as "rare" by Bowers. Reed's rating indicates two to four known. The piece is an attractive light brown color, the mica has a few natural flaws and some minor crazing at its edges but is substantially clear, and the stamp is lightly toned. We believe the actual census for this piece to be in the four-to-five range. The Stack's June 2004 piece was comparable in quality to this, and it realized over $1800. This example was from the Stack's December 1969 sale of the Arnold Perl Collection, where it was referred to as the finest known.
