DescriptionHB-184a EP-23 Scott-136 Reed-NO01 1¢ John W. Norris Very Fine.
Numerical grade: 60case.70stamp.75mica. = 205 The case is not terribly attractive. It has a large number of small corrosion spots, primarily behind the letters, and it appears to have been cleaned at one time. The stamp is a bit toned and has a spot at the bottom center. The mica has a few minor separations, but it remains clear. 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.
