    Extremely Rare One Cent Pearce, Tolle & Holton

    HB-201 EP-246 Scott-145 Reed-PE01 1¢ Pearce, Tolle & Holton Extremely Fine.
    Numerical grade: 75case.70stamp.60mica. = 205
    Listed as an R-10 and called unique by Fred Reed. We know of one other, and have heard of but not examined a third. This piece traces its history to a September 1972 Harmer sale. It's clearly superior to the Stack's 6/04 example and is very likely the finest of the two or three known. The case has a nice natural medium brass color, with darker highlights behind the letters. The stamp is well centered but somewhat toned down, and the mica, while substantially clear, has a small area of damage at the top, over the letters "AG" of POSTAGE.
