    HB-145 EP-80 Scott-104 Reed-HO05 5¢ L.C. Hopkins & Co. Choice About New.
    Numerical grade: 90case.90stamp.75mica. = 255
    An extremely rare piece, considered an R-8+, indicating five to seven known by Reed. The cataloger of the Stack's '04 sale, which also had a lovely example, stated, "Extremely rare: we suspect there are only about five of these known." We know of four: the two nice ones comprise this piece (ex-Spinks 3/85) and the Stack's Western Collection piece. The two others cannot compare for quality. This piece has a very nearly fully silvered case, including the front rim and tabs. The stamp is well centered and 100% fully bright. A few minor disturbances on the crystal-clear mica hold this from being the finest-quality piece in the sale.
    From The Frederick Mayer Collection
