Twelve Cent John Shilito & Co. - The Finer of Two KnownHB-220 EP-158 Scott-164 Reed-SH12 12¢ John Shilito & Co. Extremely Fine.
Numerical grade: 80case.80stamp.75mica. = 235 Fred Reed considers this to be an R-9, and comments, "Two known." This is the finer of the two known examples. Mr. Mayer's collection lacked this denomination until the sale of the Western Collection by Stack's in June 2004. This piece has an attractive olive-brown case with a touch of silver behind a few of the letters. The stamp is fresh, particularly for this denomination, and the mica is clear, with just some very minor separations between layers visible when the piece is turned in the light. A terrific combination of rarity and condition.
