    Description

    HB-133 EP-116 Scott-97 Reed-JG10 10¢ J. Gault About New.
    Numerical grade: 85case.80stamp.65mica. = 230
    About 60% of the original silvering remains on the back, something which is not often the case with Gault pieces. Definitive information is lacking as to what percentage of which issues were or were not silvered. Clearly, a very small percentage of Gault's own pieces had this visual enhancement, as the recessed letters of Gault's name and patent date on his pieces would have retained the silvering with ease. Many very high grade Gault pieces have not a trace of silver in the recessed letters. This piece, interestingly, has its silvering centered high, with the bottom edge unsilvered. It certainly could have worn off in this pattern, but as the patent date at the top is fully silvered in its recesses and there is not a trace at the bottom (in Gault's name), it appears this piece was only partially silvered. The stamp is fresh and very well centered, and the mica is clear, but it does have a few crazes as well as a small crack above the left tab.
