    HB-216 EP-26 Scott-160 Reed-SH01 1¢ John Shillito & Co. Choice About New.
    Numerical grade: 85case.75stamp.75mica. = 235
    Reed considers this 1¢ Shillito to be an R-8+, indicating five to seven known. In the Stack's June '04 sale, where Mr. Mayer acquired this piece, they made the somewhat enigmatic statement, "Extremely rare: we estimate there are fewer than ten known, with the actual number being somewhat lower." We're not sure what that means, but if it means five or six we agree. The case is a perfect light golden brown, the mica has just a few surface contact marks but is completely clear, and the stamp has a few light age spots, but the colors remain vivid. An important rarity.
