DescriptionHB-130 EP-47 Reed-JG03 3¢ J. Gault Ribbed Frame About New.
Fred Reed has traced thirteen auction appearances for this Ribbed Frame 3¢ Gault in his 104-year auction survey. He considers the piece to be an R-8+ (five to seven known.) The Hodder-Bowers book says, "Fewer than six," and the Stack's June 2004 catalog referred to this number as, "Extremely rare: there appear to be about five of these known." We have seen three, including the Mayer and Western Collection pieces, as well as this piece, and we have been told of one other. This case is a nice medium tan, with no disturbances of any kind, and no signs of circulation wear. The mica has two minor flaws at its very outer edges, but it is primarily crystal clear, and the stamp is just very lightly faded. A very nice combination of quality and extreme rarity.
