    HB-50 EP-6 Scott-26a Reed-BA01F/G 1¢ Joseph L. Bates Fancy Goods Choice About New.
    Numerical grade: 85case.70stamp.90mica. = 245
    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 itself is a glossy medium-brown About New with a touch of silver behind many of the letters. The stamp is beautifully fresh but somewhat off center to the upper right. The mica is about as close to flawless as these ever come. A wonderful condition piece.
    From The Frederick Mayer Collection
