    Ten Cent L.C. Hopkins & Co.- The Second Finest of Three Known

    HB-146 EP-117a Reed-HO10 10¢ L.C. Hopkins & Co. Extremely Fine.
    A wonderful combination of rarity and quality. The case is a lovely natural medium brass color, with silver behind a few of the letters. The stamp is very nicely centered and beautifully fresh, and the mica is exceptional, with only some very minor internal separations holding it from perfection. The Reed auction survey census shows only eleven auction appearances of Ten Cent Hopkins pieces. When reappearances over the century-plus period are considered, that number is very consistent with the three known survivors. Interestingly, all three are solid, problem free examples. The Mayer Collection had two, with his better piece the finest of the three. This piece is second, followed by Mr. Mayer's duplicate, which is third. But all three are amazingly nice. This piece is from the June 2004 Western Collection sale, where it was Lot 519. It realized just over $5400 nearly a decade ago.
    From The Honorable William H. Kelly Collection
