DescriptionHB-102 EP-74 Reed-DR05 5¢ Drake's Plantation Bitters About New.
The 5¢ Drake's is a much scarcer piece. Reed rates it as an R-5, indicating 21-30 known, which is about in line with the 70 auction appearances in his 100-plus-year survey period. The case is a natural medium brass color with golden undertones, and the mica is crystal clear without a hint of a mark or disturbance of any kind. It's as perfect a mica as we have ever seen. The stamp is fully bright and quite well centered. An important combination of rarity and quality.
