    HB-50 EP-6 Reed-BA01F/G 1¢ Joseph L. Bates Fancy Goods Choice 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 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 nearly fully uncirculated with light, though essentially complete silvering, lending it a spectacular amount of eye appeal. It in fact, is far better silvered than any Bates piece from the Mayer collection. The stamp is fully bright and very well centered. The mica is primarily crystal clear, although it does have a craze mark that mimics the look of a crack from the left tab into Franklin's hair.
