    Description

    HB-131 EP-78 Scott-96 Reed-JG05 5¢ J. Gault Choice About New.
    Numerical grade: 85case.90stamp.90mica. = 265
    About as close to uncirculated as any piece of Encased Postage that we've seen. The case is nearly 100% silvered on the back, the stamp is beautifully fresh and very nicely centered and the mica is about as near to perfection as these ever come. A common piece, but quite rare in this condition. In the current market, condition rarity in Encased Postage is not particularly important. In all of numismatics, this is one of the very few, if not the only remaining area where the nicest pieces do not bring multiples of the not-quite-the-nicest pieces. Should Encased Postage attract the eyes of condition-conscious collectors, this will be a piece you wished you had bought.
