    Description

    HB-184a EP-23 Reed-NO-01 1¢ John W. Norris Extremely Fine.
    The case is very high grade, with a little red and dark brown splotching at its center. The stamp is very nearly fully bright, the mica has a few flaws, mostly separations at the very edges, but there is one pinhead-size hole through to the stamp behind Franklin's head. The One Cent is the most available denomination of this very rare Chicago merchant. It's rated as an R-8 by Reed, indicating five to ten known, which seems to us to be accurate. In the Hodder-Bowers book, EP-184 was accidentally assigned to both the Twelve Cent Mendums and the One Cent Norris. The typo was on the Mendums, but as that is the earlier (alphabetically) piece, the correction by adding an "a" was made to this number.
