DescriptionHB-42 EP-173 Scott-20 Reed-AS30MD 30¢ Ayer's Sarsaparilla Medium Ayer's About New.
Numerical grade: 85case.60stamp.80mica. = 225 An extreme rarity, listed as an R-9 (2 to 4 known) by Reed, a number with which we agree. This was Lot 384 from Stack's 2004 western collection sale, and they also agreed with the census, as three confirmed with a rumored fourth. Reed's auction-census data show eleven pieces, which no doubt includes repeats. The case is an extremely nice medium golden brown, tightly closed and totally flawless, the mica is exceptional. It's crystal clear and has only very minor crazes at the top and bottom edges. The stamp is lightly toned down but retains good orange color. An important rarity that Mr. Mayer paid $4312.50 for over three years ago.
