Very Rare Ribbed Frame 12¢ J. GaultHB-136 EP-149 Scott-98a Reed-12RB 12¢ J. Gault Ribbed Frame Extremely Fine.
Numerical grade: 80case.80stamp.70mica = 230 Reed considers this Ribbed Frame 12¢ J. Gault to be an R-9, which means that he believes there are two to four known. This piece was previously Lot 505 from the Stack's June 2004 sale, where they commented, "Extremely Rare: it is likely that fewer than five of these survive." Reed's 1891-1994 auction survey indicates an even dozen appearances for this number, which likely interprets to two or three known. The case is a handsome, natural light brass color with the ribbing on the face pronounced. The stamp is beautifully centered, with strong color, and the mica is clear, with a few crazes at its outer edges and some minor separations when turned in the light.
