    HB-13 EP-159b Scott-7 Reed-AC24SA 24¢ Ayer's Cathartic Pills Short Arrows Very Fine.
    Numerical grade: 80case.40stamp.50mica. = 170

    An extremely rare piece considered unique by Mr. Mayer when it was purchased and listed as an R-10 (unique) in Reed. There is, however, a second piece which was in Stack's June 2004 sale. This piece has an essentially perfect case, with medium brown toning that is darker behind the letters. The stamp is fresh, but a little difficult to focus on as the mica is somewhat hazy due to multiple surface marks and separation among its layers.
