    HB-36 EP-98a 10¢ Ayer's Sarsaparilla Medium Ayer's Extremely Fine. Fred Reed estimates 16 to 20 examples of this number are known, a figure with which we have no disagreement. There were five examples in our sale of the Mayer Collection last September, all of which were almost identical in grade to this piece. The stamp is 100% fully bright, the mica has only minor surface marks and one small craze in Washington's hair, and the case is a full XF-AU with silver remaining behind almost every letter. The Mayer pieces sold from $450 to $625, a range that this nice Encasement will also fall into.
