DescriptionHB-3 EP-2 Scott-2 Reed-AC01SA 1¢ Ayer's Cathartic Pills Short Arrows Choice About Uncirculated.
Numerical grade: 95case.85stamp.85mica. = 265
About as close to uncirculated as any piece of Encased Postage is ever going to come. The piece is virtually fully silvered, including a considerable amount on the stamp side of the case. This piece may in fact be fully uncirculated, and the minor silver rub off on the highest points may simply be from 140+ years of collector handling. Even in this definitive collection, very few pieces rival this one from a quality standpoint. The case is pristine, the mica totally original with no flaws whatever, and the stamp is beautifully centered and perfectly fresh. Mr. Mayer has not listed the source of this piece, but he has listed his $2280 cost. If (when?) collecting Encased Postage turns to condition rarity, this becomes a five-figure piece overnight. Astounding quality.
