    Description

    HB-177 EP-52 Reed-ME03 3¢ Mendum's Family Wine Emporium Extremely Fine.
    Sold by us twice before, most recently in September of 2008 where it was described, "The case shows almost no wear, but the stamp is badly stained and the mica quite cracked. This piece is ex-Stack's Arnold Perl Collection from December 1969. It is either unique or one of two known, depending on the source consulted. No three cent Mendum's was in the massive collection sold by Stacks in June of 2004. This piece has always been considered genuine, and in fact, it may well be. But it certainly has elements that this cataloger considers suspicious." Fred Mayer also lacked a three cent Mendum's. On reinspection we still feel this piece is questionable at best, but over the past forty plus years it has acquired the "authenticity of age" and its unquestioned Perl pedigree lends it some value.
    From The Honorable William H. Kelly Collection
