    HB-100 EP-13 Scott-70 Reed-DR01 1¢ Drake's Plantation Bitters Choice About New.
    Numerical grade: 85case.80stamp.70mica. = 235
    A common encasement, rated as an R-2 (51-100) by Reed, which is no doubt accurate. This is a particularly nice piece. The case is flawless and with about half of its original silver remaining, all of which is concentrated in the center. This is one of perhaps a dozen encasements we've seen where a different method was used to seal the case. The front of the case reaches onto the beading all the way around, and has been sealed in such a way that the final millimeter before the seam is fully flattened. The stamp is fully fresh and nicely centered, the mica has a few laminated areas visible under angled light and a short crack, craze and separation at the lower right from the point of the Franklin vignette to the edge.
