    HB-116 EP-14 1¢ G.G. Evans Extremely Fine. One Cent Evans pieces are rated as R-7 by Reed (11 to 15 known.) It is really, in spite of its rarity, the only readily collectable denomination of this very scarce merchant. Evans encasements do not contain the cardboard insert common to all other merchants pieces. Consequently, the micas are almost always pushed in to some extent. This piece shows that effect, but not as drastically as most Evans encasements, although it also lacks the cardboard (drop any other encasement and an Evans encasement from about an inch high onto a hard surface, and the difference can be readily heard.) The stamp is beautifully bright, and the case is perfectly natural in multi-tone brass colors, which for some reason is very typical of Evans pieces. Fred Mayer's example, which we sold last September, was a touch nicer and realized $2530. This one should pull up just a bit short of that.
