    Description

    HB-116 EP-14 Reed-EV01 1¢ G. G. Evans About New.
    This is the second nicest Evans that we have had the pleasure of examining. It has a high-grade case with a nice medium color and lighter original highlighting behind the letters. The mica is extraordinary and just about defect free. The stamp is slightly dull and centered a touch low giving the Mayer piece a slight edge over this beauty. 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 has avoided that completely, 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.) Evans examples are rarely found anywhere near this nice.
