DescriptionHB-56 EP-102a Scott-29 Reed-BA10FG 10¢ Joseph L. Bates Fancygoods Extremely Fine.
Numerical grade: 75case.75stamp.75mica. = 225 Rated as an R-9 by Reed, with the comment "2-3 known." We are aware of three, the two in this collection and the Western Collection piece. We know of no others, but believe that a fourth piece is out there somewhere. When Mr. Mayer acquired this piece, it was listed as the finest known, which he considered it to be. This cataloger prefers the other piece in this collection, but it's a close call. The case is beautiful, with several different reddish, golden and brass colors to the back. The face shows a few minor dents on the tabs, the stamp has retained most of its color, and the mica is primarily clear, with just a few minor crazes at its outer edges.
