    Description

    HB-221 EP-27 1¢ S. Steinfeld Extremely Fine. Although this One Cent is considered an R-7 by Reed, indicating eleven to fifteen known, it is by far the most common of the Steinfelds. Fred Reed's 104-year auction survey shows that, of 75 total appearances of Steinfeld encasements at auction, 57 of those appearances were One Cent pieces. This figure, of course, includes very heavy duplication. This Steinfeld shows very little wear on the case, and it has a fair amount of heavy silver mixed in behind the letters through the center. The mica has some flaws, the worst of which is a crack running from the left tab to the center of Franklin's head. The stamp is considerably faded, and although the blue color has held up, the white portions are a deep tan. Not a thing of beauty, but rare enough to still realize four figures. Included with the lot is an S. Steinfeld store card about the size of a U.S. quarter. It's an uncirculated piece, dated 1863, with a nice red and brown coloration. (Total: 2 items)
