    Description

    HB-23 EP-136 12¢ Take Ayer's Pills About New. Some silvering remains behind the lettering on the back of this very scarce Twelve Cent Encasement. The case is essentially flawless, as is the mica, and the stamp is bright and attractive. While not highly rated in the various catalogs, we have always found this to be an extremely elusive piece, and we can trace only five examples in our records. This piece is considerably nicer than either of the two examples in Stack's June 2004 sale.
