    Description

    HB-165 EP-171 Scott-118 Reed-KG24 24¢ Kirkpatrick & Gault Extremely Fine.
    Numerical grade: 60case.65stamp.70mica. = 195
    The case has been cleaned to a bright brass color. The stamp is somewhat dull, and the mica is free from cracks and crazes, but it has a little bit more surface scratching than normal. The Kirkpatrick & Gault 24¢, while certainly not common, is actually more available than the One, Three and Twelve Cent denominations. Reed considers it to be an R-6, with sixteen to twenty examples known, and we are in agreement with that number. This piece was previously Lot 1080 from the December 1969 sale of the Arnold Perl Collection. Prior to that, it was very likely owned by T. James Clarke, who polished most all of his encasements. Traces of jewelers rouge near the left tab are also indicative of Mr. Clarke's handiwork.
    From The Frederick Mayer Collection
