    Likely Unique Ten Cent Ayer's Sarsaparilla Ribbed Frame

    HB-37 EP-99 10¢ Ayer's Sarsaparilla Medium Ayer's Ribbed Frame Very Fine.
    Probably from our Mayer sale, this piece is almost certainly the Dunham piece. Fred Reed considers it to be unique, and we are inclined to agree, as it is certainly the only example we know of. The Reed auction records indicate six appearances over his 104 year survey period. The case has circulated down to the VF grade, but it is totally problem free and tightly and evenly closed. The stamp is a bit toned, but it has retained most of its original green color. The mica has some minor crazing, and one cracked spot just to the left of Washington's mouth.
