    HB-115 EP-166 24¢ Ellis McAlpin & Company Very Fine. The case shows a fair amount of wear from actual circulation, but it is totally defect free and very attractive. The mica has lots of extremely minor surface marks from circulation, but it is 100% clear, with no cracks, crazes or disturbances of any kind. The stamp is beautifully fresh and perfectly centered. In spite of the VF grade, this is one of the nicest, best balanced Twenty-Four Cent pieces we have seen. Surprisingly, the 24¢ is one of the most common denominations for this merchant. Reed shows 24 auction appearances in his 104-year survey period, and considers it to be an R-8, with five to ten examples known. The Stack's June 2004 catalog considers the census to be "Ten to a dozen," and we tend to agree. It is actually one of the more available of the 24¢ encasements. Fred Mayer had two examples of this number, a problem piece which realized $1495, and a nice VF which realized $3740.
