    HB-122 EP-77 5¢ Gage Brother & Drake (Tremont House) About New. The most common denomination of this merchant, considered by Reed to be an R-2, indicating 51 to 100 known. While President Elect, Abraham Lincoln spent his final week in Illinois at the Tremont House prior to heading to Washington for his inauguration. The piece is a beauty, with a 100% fully fresh stamp that is ideally centered, a mica that is perfectly clear in spite of a few very minor crazes and a case with a lovely medium tone and almost no signs of wear. The central portion of the case has a nice splash of silver behind the letters.
