    HB-208 EP-128 Scott-152 Reed-SA10 10¢ Sands' Ale About New.
    Numerical grade: 80case.80stamp.65mica. = 225
    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 only two high-end pieces we know of. The case is fully About New, with a lovely natural medium-brass color with darker highlights behind the letters. The stamp is well centered and beautifully fresh. The mica is crystal clear under most lighting, but it shows some separation between layers when turned in the light. There is a single, small crack above the right tab and some minor crazing at the bottom. Mr. Mayer attributed this piece to a February 1987 Siegel sale.
