    Ribbed Frame Tremont House - The Only Example in Collectors' Hands

    HB-124 EP-119 Scott-91a Reed-TH10 10¢ Gage Brother & Drake (Tremont House) Ribbed Frame Extremely Fine.
    Numerical grade: 70case.75stamp.70mica. = 215
    The case is a glossy mahogany color, with a small dent above the "I" of Chicago, but no other flaws. The stamp is very well centered, with good color remaining, and the mica is clear, but it has a short crack at the top center and a craze below the right-hand tab. This excessively rare Ribbed Frame Tremont House encasement is unique in collectors' hands. This Ten Cent value is also the only Ribbed Tremont House of any denomination. Hodder-Bowers, Reed, the Stack's '04 catalog and this cataloger all agree that the census is two: this piece and the piece permanently impounded in the American Numismatic Society's collection. Mr. Mayer never had the opportunity to own a Ribbed Tremont House until this piece appeared as Lot 623 of the Stack's sale of the Western Collection. It realized $4140 at that sale, over three years ago.
