    Excessively Rare Ten Cent White the Hatter

    HB-237 EP-134 Scott-181 Reed-WH10 10¢ White the Hatter Very Fine.
    Numerical grade: 65case.65stamp.75mica. = 205
    The rarest denomination of White's. Considered by Reed to be an R-9, with the comment, "2-3 known." We are aware of only this example. There was a piece in the Dunham sale sold by Max Mehl in 1941, but it is not photographed, and its three-word description doesn't work for attribution purposes. Mehl mentions that the Dunham piece realized $25 when it last appeared in the 1906 Deats sale. There was no Ten Cent White in the Stack's June '04 sale. Mr. Mayer acquired this piece from Kagin's February 4, 1988 sale. The case shows considerable honest circulation wear, and it has dark stains behind some of the letters. The stamp is reasonably fresh but slightly aged at the top. The mica is clear save for a short crack at the lower left near the "T" in TEN. Whether or not this piece is unique, it is certainly highly important and worthy of a serious bid. It can be considered irreplaceable.
