    HB-179 EP-122 Scott-132 Reed-ME10 10¢ Mendum's Family Wine Emporium Choice About New.
    Numerical grade: 85case.85stamp.70mica. = 240
    The case is a glossy, medium golden brown that approaches the full uncirculated grade, although there is not a trace of silver. The mica has a few surface flaws and some minor crazing, but it remains almost entirely clear. The stamp is well centered and nearly fully fresh. This is a well balanced, high-end example of a rare piece. Reed considers it to be an R-8, indicating five to ten known. The Hodder-Bowers reference agrees with that count, and the Stack's June '04 sale catalog commented, "Very Rare: there may be as few as ten of these." If this is not the finest of them, it must be awfully close. A wonderful piece.
