    HB-122 EP-77 Scott-90 Reed-TH05 5¢ Gage Brother & Drake (Tremont House)Choice About New.
    Numerical grade: 90case.80stamp.80mica. = 250
    One of the very highest quality encasements in Mr. Mayer's incredible collection. The back of the case is nearly 100% silvered, with the silver remaining even on the high points of many of the letters. There is also a touch of silver on the front tabs. The stamp is fresh and nicely centered, and the mica is beautifully clear, with only minimal surface marks. Very few examples of Encased Postage boast even vaguely comparable quality. This Five Cent along with the Ten Cent are the only two easily collectable denominations from this merchant. Considered an R-2 by Reed, indicating 51 to 100 known.
