    HB-120 EP-15 Scott-88 1¢ Gage Brother & Drake (Tremont House)About New.
    Numerical grade: 80case.85stamp.75mica. = 240
    The One Cent denomination of this merchant is surprisingly scarce. Fred Reed's auction survey shows only twenty-five appearances from the 1891 through 1994 period, which of course includes heavy duplication. Reed rates the piece as an R-8, indicating five to ten known, a number with which we are in agreement. Mr. Mayer had been unable to obtain this denomination in his decades of collecting until the piece appeared in the Stack's June 2004 sale. This piece, previously Lot 615 from that sale, has a considerable amount of silvering remaining behind the letters. The stamp is beautifully centered and with its full, bright blue color. The mica is clear, with only minor crazing at its outer edges, primarily above the left tab. Mr. Mayer acquired this piece in 2004 for $1265.
