DescriptionHB-134 EP-117 Scott-97a Reed-JG10RB 10¢ J. Gault Ribbed Frame About New.
Rated as an R-6 by Reed, indicating sixteen to twenty known, which we think may be a hair on the low side. This is the second most common of any Ribbed Frame Encased Postage. Mr. Mayer paid a bit of a premium for this piece, because the back is rotated ninety degrees. Our opinion has been and continues to be that the premium for fully and partially rotated backs on Encased Postage is simply silly. Production standards were lax at best, and the only reason rotated backs have ever been mentioned in catalogs is, in our opinion, for the lack of something else to say. This piece has a lovely About New case, an exceptional stamp, both in color and centering and a rather average mica, with some crazing and minor cracks in the vicinity of the left tab.
