    Pair of Extremely Rare Ribbed Frame 12¢ Irving House

    HB-156 EP-151 12¢ Irving House Hunt & Nash - Ribbed Frame About New. This piece was previously Lot 528 of Stack's June 2004 sale of the Western Collection. A typo in the HB reference causes some confusion about the number of this piece. The EP and HB numbers were flipped in the Hodder-Bowers reference, causing the 5¢ and 12¢ to have the same HB number. Stack's followed that lead and got it wrong in their catalog. Only three examples of this incredible rarity are known, two of which appear in this sale. This is the finer of the two, with a beautiful light brass case, near fully bright stamp and essentially perfect mica.
