    Description

    HB-190 EP-53 Scott-141a Reed-NA03ST 3¢ North America Life Insurance Straight Insurance Very Fine
    Numerical grade: 60case.70stamp.70mica. = 200
    Rated as an R-5 by Reed, indicating 21 to 30 known. We agree with that number; this is the second most available of the North Americas, falling just behind the Straight Insurance 1¢. The case is well circulated but problem free, the stamp is reasonably fresh and decently centered, the mica is clear but at the top of the piece in Washington's hair, the top layer of the mica has separated and the cleaner, clearer underlayer is now exposed. Really not that bad a piece, and one that should prove relatively inexpensive.
