    Description

    HB-50 EP-6 1¢ Joseph L. Bates Fancy Goods About New. This One Cent piece with "Fancy Goods" as two words is by far the most common of any of the Bates pieces. The One Cent denomination is the only easily obtained denomination for Bates, and the two-word Fancy Goods is much more common than the one word. Reed rates this as an R-4, indicating 31 to 40 known - a figure with which we agree. The case is a glossy About New, which boasts a touch of original red coloration and silvering behind the letters. The stamp is not quite fully fresh, but it remains attractive, and the mica is very nearly perfect save for some very minor craze marks at its outer edges.
    From The Chet Krause Collection
