    Likely Finest Known Three Cent Tremont House

    HB-121 EP-45 Scott-89 Reed-TH03 3¢ Gage Brother & Drake (Tremont House)Extremely Fine.
    Numerical grade: 75case.80stamp.75mica. = 230
    An exceptional example of this important rarity, and quite likely the finest known. It is vastly superior to the Stack's June 2004 example. The problem-free case is an attractive medium tan. The mica has a natural as-made ripple but is free from the normal crazes, and the stamp is nicely centered, fresh and clean. Reed considers this Three Cent Tremont House to be an R-8, indicating Five to Ten known. But his 104-year auction census shows only eighteen total appearances, generally indicative of a piece with three or four examples known. We know of only five, and suspect the actual number of survivors to be six or seven.
