    HB-161 EP-50 Scott-114 Reed-KG03 3¢ Kirkpatrick & Gault Choice About New.
    Numerical grade: 85case.65stamp.90mica. = 240
    Three Cent Kirkpatrick & Gaults are surprisingly rare. Fred Reed rates them as R-8, indicating five to ten known, a number which we suspect might be a bit on the high side. This piece, which was previously Lot 532 from Stack's June 2004 sale, is a beauty. The case is a high-end AU, which has almost all its silvering remaining on the back. The mica is about as nice as these ever come. The stamp is lightly toned, and it shows two small holes that were present prior to this piece's production. An important rarity.
