    Description

    HB-36 EP-98a Scott-17 Reed-AS10MD 10¢ Ayer's Sarsaparilla Medium Ayer's Extremely Fine.
    Numerical grade: 65case.50stamp.90mica. = 205
    The case appears to have a fair amount of actual circulation wear at the bottom, but the upper part of the case grades fully Extremely Fine or better. The back was poorly struck, making the word "Blood" and Gault's patent information subject to quick wear, so much so that most all of Gault's patent information has worn off. The mica is very nearly perfect, and the stamp is primarily quite fresh, though there are some minor traces of soiling on its surfaces. The die break is apparent over its full length, but it is extremely light. A scarcer issue than normally presumed, with an R-6 rating in Reed.'
