    Description

    HB-156 EP-151 Scott-110a Reed-IH12RB 12¢ Irving House - Hunt & Nash Ribbed Frame Extremely Fine.
    Numerical grade: 75case.65stamp.75mica. = 215
    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. The case is a solid XF, with the back Inverted, as is rather typical of Irving House pieces. The stamp is toned, although not terribly so, and the mica is clear, with a few of the normal separations and minor crazes.
