    HB-116 EP-14 Scott-84 Reed-EV01 1¢ G.G. Evans About New.
    Numerical grade: 75case.80stamp.85mica. = 240
    This is the single nicest Evans that we have had the pleasure of examining. It has a high-grade case with a nice medium color and lighter original highlight behind the letters. The mica is extraordinary and just about defect free. The stamp is beautifully fresh and very well centered. This encasement was the plate piece for the Hodder-Bowers reference book. 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.) One of the highest quality pieces in Mr. Mayer's incredible collection is made even more so by the fact that Evans examples are rarely found nice.
