    HB-207 EP-90 Scott-151 Reed-SA05 5¢ Sands' Ale About New.
    Numerical grade: 75case.85stamp.75mica. = 235
    Sand's Ale is one of the rarest of the merchants. Only two denominations definitively exist, this Five Cent and the rarer-still Ten Cent. Twelves, Twenty-Fours and Thirties have historic auction appearances, but none have proven genuine. This piece has a fully AU case that appears to have been lightly cleaned at one time (not polished) and is now retoning nicely. The stamp is beautifully fresh but a bit off center to the left. The mica has a short crack above the right tab and a few other crazes at the edges. The Five Cent piece is considered by Reed to be an R-8, indicating five to ten known. We believe the census to be eight, several of which are rather low grade.
