DescriptionHB-153 EP-118 Scott-109 Reed-IH10 10¢ Irving House - Hunt & Nash Extremely Fine.
Numerical grade: 75case.60stamp.75mica. = 210 This Ten Cent plain frame Irving House is considerably rarer than its Ribbed Frame counterpart. Fred Reed considers it an R-8+, indicating five to seven known, a number with which we agree. In auction appearance over a 104-year period, there have been 33 appearances of Ten Cent Plain Frame Irving House pieces and 73 appearances of Ribbed Frame examples. These numbers of course include massive duplication, but they serve very nicely to show proportionate rarity. This piece has a back with the typical light brass Irving House color, though it is somewhat darker toward the middle. The stamp has two light stains, and it is a bit soiled. The mica is problem free and quite nice. The back is assembled upside down relative to the face. This is seen throughout Encased Postage, but it is much more common on Irving House than on any others.
