    HB-122 EP-77 5¢ Gage Brother & Drake (Tremont House) Very Fine-Extremely Fine.
    John Gault's largest customer for his encased stamps west of the Hudson River was the hotel, Tremont House owned by David & George Gage and John Drake. Abraham Lincoln stayed at the Tremont House a week before his inauguration before heading on to Washington, DC. This is the most common piece for this merchant and is listed by Reed as R-2, 51-100 known. It has a bright stamp, but it has a small hole in the area of Jefferson's neck. The rest of the mica is intact. The case is a nice brown, is totally intact with only two rust spots noted.
