    Unique Twelve Cent Pearce, Tolle & Holton

    HB-205 EP-156 Scott-149 Reed-PE12 12¢ Pearce, Tolle & Holton About New.
    Numerical grade: 80case.75stamp.85mica. = 240
    A wonderful piece, considered unique by everyone everywhere. On top of its unchallenged uniqueness, the piece is also in wonderful condition. The case is fully AU, with a lovely olive-gold color and brighter original highlights behind all the letters. It was called Uncirculated in its only prior public auction appearance, when Stack's sold the Western Collection in June of 2004. Their grading was super conservative at that sale, and we suspect this grade was a typo. In any event, it's fully AU, with a lightly toned stamp and an extraordinarily clear, fault free mica. This was one of the highlights of the Western Collection, and now it is a significant highlight of Mr. Mayer's collection. Irreplaceable.
    From The Frederick Mayer Collection
