    HB-172 EP-153 Scott-125 Reed-LT12 12¢ Lord & Taylor Very Fine.
    Numerical grade: 75case.85stamp.85mica. = 205
    The degree of circulation wear on the case shows this piece spent a fair amount of time actually moving about in the channels of commerce. Somewhat surprisingly, the stamp and mica have held up beautifully. The stamp has terrific color as well as being nicely centered, and the mica shows no circulation-caused defects whatsoever. It's crystal clear, with just a few very minor natural separations between layers that become visible when the piece is rotated in the light. Fred Reed considers this 12¢ Lord & Taylor to be an R-8, indicating that five to ten examples are known. We agree. A solidly handsome and very rare piece.
