    High Grade and Flawless Ninety Cent Kirkpatrick & Gault

    HB-167 EP-187 Scott-120 Reed-KG90 90¢ Kirkpatrick & Gault About New.
    Numerical grade: 80case.75stamp.75mica. = 230
    This extremely rare ninety-cent denomination piece was previously Lot 544 from Stack's June 2004 sale. The catalogers there referred to the piece as, "Extremely Rare: we believe there are about five to seven of these in existence." Fred Reed agrees, giving this piece an R-8 rating, indicating five to ten known. We believe the correct number is six, but it could just as easily be five or seven. In any event, this is one of the finest known 90¢ examples of any issuer. The case is a lustrous medium brown, the mica is clear save for two tiny crazes at the very bottom right, and the blue stamp is quite fresh. Ninety Cent encasements always bring about the closest of scrutiny, and this piece is one where there is utterly no doubt as to its genuineness. A highly important piece.
