30¢ J. Gault Ribbed Frame - One of Two KnownHB-140 EP-179 Scott-100a Reed-JG30RB 30¢ J. Gault Ribbed Frame Extremely Fine.
Numerical grade: 75case.70stamp.60mica = 205 Fred Reed considers this 30¢ Gault to be an R-9, with the additional comment, "Two known." That would be consistent with his 104-year auction survey results showing nine appearances. The June '04 Stack's sale had the other known example, where they also made the comment that there were two known. Both that piece and this are genuine beyond any hint of suspicion. And both are about equal in quality. This piece has a problem-free case, with easily seen ribbing on the front. The stamp has its fairly strong orange color, but the white portions are a bit muted. The mica is very substantially clear, but there is a crack running from the bottom left across Franklin's shoulders to the back of his hair. An extreme rarity.
