    Description

    HB-225 EP-28 1¢ N & G Taylor & Co. Extremely Fine. N & G Taylor is one of the rarest of the Encased Postage issuers. The Hodder-Bowers book states, "Denominations known include 1¢ through 12¢. None is really collectable." Fred Reed considers this One Cent denomination to be an R-7, indicating eleven to fifteen known. We basically agree, but are more inclined to ten or eleven. In any event, this One Cent denomination is by far the most available of the N & G Taylor pieces. This example has a lovely XF-plus case, with a splash of silver remaining behind all of the letters. The stamp is very nearly fully fresh, and well centered within the piece. The mica has a few minor separations and surface marks, but nothing of any consequence. The Mayer Collection contained two examples, the nicer of which realized $4300, and the lesser $1850. This piece falls between those two for quality, and should also do that for value. Included with this lot is an N & G Taylor advertising token dated 1863. It's a nice AU, with a fair amount of mint red remaining. (Total: 2 items)
