DescriptionHB-12 EP-135a Scott-6 Reed-AC12LA 12¢ Ayer's Cathartic Pills Long Arrows Extremely Fine.
Numerical grade: 70case.80stamp.70mica. = 220
An extreme rarity with only two or three examples known. Fred Reed says "Two known," in his rarity table. The Stack's June 2004 sale said, "Extremely Rare: There may be only as few as two or three of these known." This cataloger is familiar with only two pieces, the Stack's example and this piece, although photo comparisons with the Lilly Sale example seem to indicate that there is a third. The piece is a most attractive medium brown, with even wear and just a few minor circulation-caused dings on the case. The mica is crystal clear, with a few tiny crazes at its outer edges. The stamp is fresh and well centered. This would be a highly desirable piece even if it were the far more common short-arrows variety.
