    Description

    HB-144 EP-48 5¢ L.C. Hopkins & Co. Extremely Fine. Although the Three Cent is the most common of the Hopkins pieces, it is itself an important rarity, with fewer than eight examples known in all grades. This particular piece is one of the finest we know of. It's virtually identical to the Mayer piece, which realized $3000 last September. The case is a light brass color that approaches full About Uncirculated grade, the stamp has about 90% of its color, and the mica shows only a few surface marks and a short crack that runs from the bottom left to the tip of Washington's bust. A rare and important merchant.
