    Description

    HB-50 EP-6 1¢ Joseph L. Bates Fancy Goods Extremely Fine.
    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 far more common than the one-word. Reed rates this piece as an R-4, indicating 31 to 40 known, a figure with which we agree. The case is a pleasing medium brass color, with a considerable amount of silvering remaining behind most of the letters. The mica is essentially perfect, with just some minor surface marks and a few separations seen only on a few angles. The stamp is fresh and a lovely deep blue.
