    HB-129 EP-46 Scott-95 Reed-JG03 3¢ J. Gault Choice About New
    Numerical grade: 90case.75stamp.75mica. = 240
    This piece was previously Lot 997 from the December 1969 sale of the Arnold Perl Collection. It's a denomination that is far scarcer than one might expect. Reed correctly considers it an R-8: five to ten known. It has about the same number of auction appearances as the One Cent and Ninety Cent in Fred Reed's 1891 through 1994 auction survey. The rather surprising numbers are 45 One Cent, 44 Three Cent and 43 Ninety Cent. It must be remembered that these numbers are all-inclusive, with heavily repeated appearances. This piece is a beauty, with a very nearly uncirculated case that has a nice, natural light brass color. The stamp is very nicely centered, and quite, although not fully, fresh. The mica is free from cracks or serious marks and it is completely clear, but a separation between layers can be seen by Washington's face when the piece is angled in the light.
    From The Frederick Mayer Collection
