    HB-152 EP-82 Scott-108a Reed-IH05RB 5¢ Irving House - Hunt & Nash Ribbed Frame About New.
    Numerical grade: 85case.80stamp.70mica. = 235
    This Five Cent Irving House is actually far more common in this Ribbed Frame variety than it is in the plain frame. Reed considers this to be an R-4, indicating 31 to 40 pieces known, and we feel that may be just a tad high, though we would not be at all surprised if the accurate census were at least 25. This is an exceptional quality example, with a very high-end case that has a touch of silver remaining behind the letters in the center. The stamp is extremely fresh, but centered a drop to the lower left. The mica is clear and problem free save for a small craze immediately above the left hand tab. This is the most common of any ribbed frame piece, and with its high quality it would be an excellent choice for a type set.
