    Ribbed Frame Three Cent Irving House

    HB-150 EP-49a Scott-107a Reed-IH03RB 3¢ Irving House - Hunt & Nash Ribbed Frame About New.
    Numerical grade: 75case.75stamp.80mica. = 230
    An extreme rarity which Reed considers to be an R-9 and comments, "Two known." This is the only example we are aware of. There was none in the Stack's June '04 sale, nor the Lilly, Perl or Dunham sales. It's a very nice piece, with the typical light-brass color that is often seen on these early-produced Irving House pieces. The stamp is just a touch toned, and the mica is flawless save for a few minor internal separations visible when the piece is turned in the light. Irving House is one of the few merchants where there are enough Ribbed Frame pieces of varied denominations to clearly demonstrate that this variety was deliberately ordered by the merchant.
