    Very Rare Drink Sands' Ale Ten Cent

    HB-208 EP-128 Reed-SA10 10¢ Sands' Ale Extremely Fine.
    This Ten Cent Sands' Ale is excessively rare. The Hodder-Bowers book estimates four to six known; the Stack's June '04 catalog said four or five; Reed calls it an R-9 and comments, "2-3 known." We know of five, two of which are serious problem pieces, though perfectly genuine. This example is one of the three high-end pieces we know of. The case is a natural light brass, with a small spot of corrosion below the "D" in "Drink." The stamp is fully bright and well centered; the mica is clear everywhere but in the lower-left quadrant, which has a number of cracks and crazes.
