DescriptionHB-45 EP-36 Scott-22 Reed-BC03 3¢ Bailey & Co. Extremely Fine.
Numerical grade: 75case.65stamp.85mica. = 225 R-8 is the most "common" rating of any of the Bailey's, with the One, Three, Five and Ten all earning that designation from Reed. His 104-year auction survey also indicates almost identical frequency of appearance for those four denominations. However, the Three Cent, in recent years, has appeared the most often, and one gets the distinct impression that it is the most available denomination of this scarce merchant. This piece has an attractive medium brass case, an exceptional mica and a nicely centered stamp that is somewhat toned in its white areas, but remains bright red in its inked areas.
