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

    HB-180 EP-123 Scott-132a Reed-ME10RB 10¢ Mendum's Family Wine Emporium Ribbed Frame Extremely Fine.
    Numerical grade: 75case.85stamp.80mica. = 240
    Only two ribbed-frame Mendum's exist. Both are Ten Cent pieces, and both are in this collection. 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.
    From The Frederick Mayer Collection
