DescriptionHB-219 EP-130 Scott-163 Reed-SH05 10¢ John Shilito & Co. About New.
Numerical grade: 70case.65stamp.65mica. = 200 Mr. Mayer attributes this rare piece as having previously been Lot 1063 from the December 1969 sale of the Arnold Perl Collection. Fred Reed considers this to be an R-8, with five to ten pieces known. The Hodder-Bowers catalog says, "under ten known." And the Reed auction census of 36 appearances in 104 years seems indicative of that five to ten census. Both the Stack's '04 Western Collection piece and this piece were below average for their respective collections, suggesting just how hard these are to come by. The case is a medium golden brown with no problems, the stamp is toned and the mica has some minor crazing, with far more than normal surface marks.
