    Ten Cent Ribbed Drake's Plantation Bitters - The Finest of Two Known

    HB-105 EP-111 Scott-73a Reed-DR10 10¢ Drake's Plantation Bitters About New.
    Numerical grade: 85case.70stamp.75mica. = 230
    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.
