    Description

    HB-101 EP-42 Scott-71 Reed-DR03 3¢ Drake's Plantation Bitters Very Fine.
    Numerical grade: 30case.60stamp.70mica. = 160
    The case has been polished to an unattractive glossy bright brass color. Most all of these horror pieces can be traced back to the T. James Clarke Collection. On occasion, one of these gets called "Gold," with the persistent story that Gault gave a gold presentation set to President Lincoln. There is no factual basis whatever for the existence of such a gold set. There is also no factual basis for any connection between Lincoln and Encased Postage. The Stack's June 2004 sale had three gold-plated pieces, but they all contained experimental stamps. These brightly colored brass pieces are neither gold nor presentation. They are also not uncirculated, as they are sometimes called. They are simply improperly cleaned, and highly polished.
    From The Frederick Mayer Collection
