    HB-104 EP-110 Scott-73 Reed-DR10 10¢ Drake's Plantation Bitters Extremely Fine, Cleaned.
    Numerical grade: 50case.80stamp.60mica. = 190
    Ten Cent Drakes are rather scarce, considered by Reed to be an R-5. His auction survey shows 55 appearances in 104 years. This piece has been polished to a reflectively bright, unpleasant brass color. It almost certainly traces this defect to T. James Clarke, a collector who was active in the 1940's and polished his entire collection. The mica has a few minor defects, mostly at the outer edges, and a thin crack near Washington's left eye, but it is substantially clear. The stamp is well centered and fresh.
