    HB-113 EP-112 10¢ Ellis McAlpin & Co. Very Fine. Fred Reed considers this 10¢ McAlpin to be an R5, indicating 21-30 known. The Hodder-Bowers book disagrees by a considerable amount, which is rather unusual, stating "six specimens of the 10¢ denomination had been traced, two of which are in institutional collections." Our opinion is right in between, we only believe eight or ten of these exist. This one has a fair amount of actual circulation on the case, but absolutely no damage, problems, or flaws of any kind. The mica is very nearly perfect and the stamp, just slightly toned down from its full bright color. This is a far finer example than lot 12793 of the Mayer Collection which realized $1,495 in September of 2007.
