    HB-189 EP-24a Scott-140 Reed-NA01CU 1¢ North America Life Insurance Curved Insurance Extremely Fine
    Numerical grade: 75case.90stamp.90mica. = 255
    The scarcer of the two 1¢ varieties, and a very nice example. The case is mahogany, with great detail. The mica is crystal clear and essentially flawless, as good as any we've seen, and the stamp has brilliant color and is quite nicely centered. Save for two minor corrosion spots, one on the "U" of "INSURANCE" and one on the "Y" of company, this would be one of the finest condition pieces in this sale. Even with those minor flaws, this one is still in the top twenty.
