    HB-114 EP-146 Scott-82 Reed-EM12 12¢ Ellis McAlpin & Company About New.
    Numerical grade: 80case.80stamp.60mica. = 220
    A beautiful and very rare piece. Reed's auction survey shows only thirteen examples, including heavy duplication. His rarity rating of R-9 indicates two to four known. The Hodder-Bowers reference feels "Two or three," and the Stack's June 2004 catalog, which offered two pieces, stated, "Four or five." We believe four is the correct number. This one is a beauty, with a glossy, medium brown high-end case that shows virtually no circulation. The stamp is as nice as any Twelve Cent we've seen. The mica is clear, but it has two areas of minor crazing: one in Washington's hair and the second on his shoulder.
