    HB-173 EP-172 Scott-126 Reed-LT24 24¢ Lord & Taylor Extremely Fine.
    Numerical grade: 75case.75stamp.75mica. = 225
    High denomination Lord & Taylor pieces have long been among the most sought-after items in the Encased Postage field. This one is a solid, problem free example and one of the nicer pieces we've seen. Reed rates this as an R-8, indicating that five to ten examples are known. We suspect the number is closer to the higher end, with likely eight to ten pieces accounted for. This handsome example has a perfect olive-gold case with a tight, even closure all around. The stamp, though is somewhat faded. The mica is problem free save for very minor crazing at its outer edges and a few separations that are visible when the piece is moved in a light source.
