DescriptionHB-115 EP-166 Scott-83 Reed-EM24 24¢ Ellis McAlpin & Company Very Fine.
Numerical grade: 60case.65stamp.65mica. = 190 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 piece "Ten to a dozen," and we tend to agree. It is actually one of the more available of the 24¢ encasements. The case is quite dark, with minor corrosion at the seam. The mica is clear, but with a number of surface marks, and the stamp is toned down.
