    HB-158 EP-170 Scott-111a Reed-IH24RB 24¢ Irving House - Hunt & Nash Ribbed Frame Extremely Fine.
    Numerical grade: 75case.60stamp.60mica. = 195
    Reed considers this piece to be at least an R-9, with the comment, "?-2 known." We are sure that there are two, and believe that to be the full census. But the second piece has not been seen by this cataloger. The June 2004 Stack's sale, which until now was the finest collection ever auctioned, did not have an example of this number. Stack's commented, "The only Ribbed Frame 24 Cent piece seen by the cataloger is an alteration, and he suspects this variety may not exist." He clearly had never seen this piece, which is genuine beyond any possible suspicion. That could well leave this piece unique. Reed's auction survey indicates five appearances in 104 years, a number that could indicate one or two pieces. This one has an inverted back that grades very nearly AU. The right front tab has some minor denting. The stamp is faded and a touch soiled, and the mica has a cracked and crazed area at the bottom. A highly significant encasement!
