    Very Rare S. Steinfeld One Cent

    HB-221 EP-27 1¢ S. Steinfeld Extremely Fine. Steinfeld is one of the few very rare merchants, and his is generally one of the final pieces acquired by collectors who attempt to assemble 34-piece Merchant Sets. Only about a dozen Steinfeld encasements are known to exist for all denominations, with the great majority being 1¢ examples, many of which are rather sad looking. This is a very nice piece, with the case showing some even wear and contact marks but no real problems. The mica has two areas of crazing, and the stamp is nearly fully bright. This cataloger, who has made a bit of a specialty out of the Encased-Postage hobby for the past 30 years, has seen only two Steinfelds nicer than this piece, both of which were also 1¢. An opportunity to acquire any, much less any decent-condition, example of this merchant should not be passed up. Est. 3,500up
