    Description

    HB-225 EP-28 1¢ N & G Taylor Choice About New. A tin plate company founded in 1810, 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. The case is a beautiful AU on this example, with considerable original color behind most of the letters. The blue 1¢ stamp featuring the portrait of famous Philadelphian Benjamin Franklin, Scott catalog number 63, is quite fresh, but it was folded prior to encasement. The mica is 100% crystal clear, with no evidence whatever of crazing, separation or defect of any kind. As the N & G Taylor issues are among the rarer encasements, this is a highly important example. The company also issued several Civil War Storecard tokens and actively participated in the 1876 Centennial Exhibition.

    Estimate: $7,500 - up.
