    HB-218 EP-92 Scott-162 Reed-SH05 5¢ John Shillito & Co. About New.
    Numerical grade: 80case.85stamp.80mica. = 245
    Five Cents is the most common of the Shillito denominations, rated as an R-4 by Reed, indicating 31 to 40 known, a number with which we are in agreement. This one is extremely nice, with a high-end, natural golden case that has some reddish highlights. The stamp is extraordinarily fresh and attractive, and the mica is free of problems and crystal clear, with only the most minor laminations visible at the outer edges when it is turned in the light.
