    Unique Thirty Cent Irving House

    HB-159 EP-180 Scott-112 Reed-IH30 30¢ Irving House - Hunt & Nash Extremely Fine.
    Numerical grade: 75case.70stamp.75mica. = 220
    This piece is listed as unique by Reed. In its June 2004 Stack's sale appearance, the cataloger stated, "Unique. No other either known or even hinted at in a century of research." We certainly agree, as the Western Collection piece (this example) has been known to be unique throughout this cataloger's 45 years in the business. It's a beautiful piece, with the typical Irving House case color and just a few unobtrusive stains on the back. The stamp has all its bright orange color, and it is jut a tiny touch toned in its white areas. The mica has few minor crazes at its outer edges, but it is substantially clear. A very handsome 30¢ piece that is both unique and genuine beyond suspicion. One of the most significant encasements in Mr. Mayer's incomparable collection.
