    Description

    HB-154 EP-119 Scott-109a Reed-IH10RB 10¢ Irving House - Hunt & Nash Ribbed Frame About New.
    Numerical grade: 85case.75stamp.75mica. = 235
    Mr. Mayer had a particular fondness for the Irving House Issues, and he studied them rather extensively. Consequently, there is a fair amount of duplication. In spite of this Ribbed Frame Irving House's being a rather scarce piece (Reed R-5, 21-30 known), there are five in this collection. This one, the first of the five, has an upright back that is in extraordinary condition for the heavily used Irving House issue. It is fully About New, with a hint of original color behind some of the letters. The Ribbed Frame face of the case is flawless, the reasonably fresh stamp is perfectly centered and the mica shows only the normal surface marks and some extremely minor crazing at its outer edges. A very exceptional example of this scarce piece.
    From The Frederick Mayer Collection
