    HB-198 EP-126 10¢ North America Life Insurance Company - Ribbed Frame Extremely Fine. This is the variety with the word "Insurance" curved. This ribbed frame piece is a classic rarity in the Encased field. We know of only one other which coincides with both the Bower's reference and the Stack's June 2004 catalog. This piece was Lot 580 in the Stack's sale and we feel our consignor got one of the great bargains that night at just a shade over $2,000. Not only is this piece extremely rare, but it is also unusually high grade with a lustrous olive-gold case that is essentially flawless. A bright, well-centered stamp, and mica that is perfect save for some very minor surface marks.
