    Description

    HB-52 EP-37 Scott-27a 3¢ Joseph L. Bates Fancy Goods About New.
    The case has almost all its silvering remaining, the stamp is somewhat faded but nicely centered, and the mica is clear but with cracks and crazes in its very edge, particularly at the lower left. Three Cent Bates pieces are extremely rare. The one-word "FANCYGOODS" does not exist, and this two-word "FANCY GOODS" is represented by perhaps three to five examples, of which this is likely the finest. This extremely rare piece appeared in the June 2004 Western Collection sale as Lot 401.
