    HB-156 EP-151 Reed-IH12RB 12¢ Irving House Hunt & Nash Ribbed Frame About New.
    When we sold Bill Kelly's collection of encased postage in our January FUN 2012 auction, we described this piece as, "Reed comments, 'Two known' for this R-9 piece, but we know for sure of three, and suspect a fourth. 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. In June of 2004, Stack's followed that lead and got the numbers wrong in their catalog. In any event, this is an important rarity. This piece was purchased from us at our 2007 FUN sale. It's a very nice piece with a beautiful light brass case, near fully bright stamp and essentially perfect mica."
