    Ribbed Frame Ten Cent Mendum's - One of Two Known

    HB-180 EP-123 Reed ME10RB 10¢ Mendum's Family Wine Emporium Ribbed Frame Extremely Fine.
    Only two ribbed-frame Mendum's exist. The other example has a nicer case, and we have referred to it as the finest known. This piece has a slightly more worn, less attractive case, with red, brown and golden color. The mica and stamp on this piece both have a slight edge over the other, and the true finest known lies in the opinion of the viewer. In any event, this is a lovely, excessively rare piece. Bill Kelly acquired this piece as Lot 12290 from our April 2008 sale. It was previously Fred Mayer's duplicate from our September 2007 sale. In May of '08, it realized just over $5000.
