Extremely Rare Ten Cent Hopkins - One of Two or Three KnownHB-146 EP-117a Scott-105 Reed-HO10 10¢ L.C. Hopkins & Co.
Numerical grade: 75case.85stamp.70mica. = 230 The Ten Cent Hopkins is a major rarity. Mr. Mayer's piece traces its history to the June 1984 Bowers sale of the Jim Ruddy Collection. Fred Reed considers it an R-9, indicating 2-3 known; we know of Mr. Mayer's two pieces, the 6/04 Stack's piece (the Western Collection) and no others. This example is a solid XF, with a pleasing natural olive gold color to the case. The stamp is beautifully centered and very fresh, and the mica is almost entirely clear, with just a single craze at the lower right over the "TS" of CENTS.
