    Likely finest Known 10¢ McAlpin

    HB-113 EP-112 Scott-81 Reed-EM10 10¢ Ellis McAlpin & Company Extremely Fine.
    Numerical grade: 75case.70stamp.70mica. = 215
    A very handsome example of this important rarity. Mr. Mayer attributed this piece to Stack's February 1969 sale, and although we lack the catalog, every one of his verifiable pedigrees has been correct, and we suspect that this one is too. The case is a medium brown with some wear on the central letters (the high point) and virtually none at the edges. The mica has a few minor crazes at the top edge and some circulation marks on its surface, but it remains clear. The stamp is perfectly centered and just a little off its full color. Quite possibly the finest known Ten Cent McAlpin.
