    Description

    HB-139 EP-178 Scott-100 Reed-JG30 30¢ J. Gault Extremely Fine.
    Numerical grade: 50case.75stamp.70mica = 195
    As with the 12¢ and 24¢, this 30¢ J. Gault is among the most common Thirties in the series. However, common in the 30¢ denomination still means pretty darn scarce. Reed considers this piece to be an R-6, indicating sixteen to twenty examples known. We feel twenty or so is probably just about right. This piece would be quite a nice example were it not for a single annoying defect: A large "H" has been lightly scratched into the blank central area of the back. The stamp has somewhat muted color, but it retains decent orange. The mica is clear save for some very minor crazes and a short crack, in the top layer only, at the top of Franklin's forehead.
