    HB-133 EP-116 Scott 97 10¢ J. Gault About New.
    Numerical grade: 80case.65stamp.80mica. = 225
    A very nice example of this common piece. Reed considers it to be an R-1, indicating over 100 examples are known. However many are known, the Five and Ten Cent Gaults are among the most common of all the encasements. This one is a solidly representative example, with the case and mica being very upper end. The stamp has a few small imperfections including, strangely, a small hole in Washington's hair that clearly was present prior to encasement, as the mica covering it is flawless. Mr. Mayer attributes this piece as having been Lot 1052 from the 1969 Arnold Perl Collection sale.
