    Unique Twelve Cent N & G Taylor

    HB-229 EP-159a Scott-173 Reed-TA12 12¢ N & G Taylor Very Fine.
    Numerical grade: 50case.75stamp.75mica. = 200
    Everyone is in total agreement as the the uniqueness of this Twelve Cent N & G Taylor. Fred Reed calls it R-10 and comments "Unique," as does the Hodder-Bowers book and the Stack's June 2004 sale of the Western Collection. Stack's pedigreed the piece as ex-T. James Clarke August 13, 1956, but the piece unfortunately pedigrees itself. It has been brightly polished, as was Mr. Clarke's aberrant proclivity. Though the physical appearance of the case is less than satisfying, the stamp and mica are both highly pleasing, and the rarity and genuineness are both beyond question. One of Mr. Mayer's more recent acquisitions, and one of his highly important pieces.
