    HB-138 EP-168 Scott-99a Reed-JG24RB 24¢ J. Gault Ribbed Frame Extremely Fine.
    Numerical grade: 75case.65stamp.75mica = 215
    Fred Reed considers this variety to be an R-9 with the comment, "2 known." We believe the correct number to be five: the two pieces in the Stack's June '04 sale, the two examples in this collection and one other. The case is light brass, with a slightly lighter-colored rectangular area at the center. The ribbing on the front side of the case is extremely deep and pronounced. The stamp, as is often the reality with this denomination, has faded, but it remains distinct. The mica is free of any meaningful problems, but there are a number of separations visible when the piece is turned in the light, and there is a small craze above the right tab.
