Ten Cent Ribbed Frame Drake's Plantation Bitters - The Finer of Two KnownHB-105 EP-111 Reed DR10 10¢ Drake's Plantation Bitters Ribbed Frame About New.
From our September 2007 Sale of the Frederick Mayer Collection where it was described: "Rated as an R-9 by Reed, with the comment, '2-3 known.' We are aware of only two, the piece in the Stack's June '04 sale and this example, which can clearly be photo-matched as Lot 372 from the September 1967 Lilly sale. The case is a strong About New, with a large area of silvering remaining in the center. The mica shows some minor marks at its outer edges, but it is very clear. The stamp has a wrinkle, and there is a light stain in Washington's hair. A rare and most important piece that Mr. Mayer acquired for over $7000 several years ago." Bill Kelly was not the buyer at the Mayer Sale, he acquired this piece several months later for over $4500.
