    HB-62 EP-7 Reed-BT01 1¢ Brown's Bronchial Troches Very Fine.
    An exceptionally nice example of a far scarcer denomination. Fred Reed's 104-year auction survey shows only six appearances of One Cent Brown's. He rates the piece as an R-8+, indicating five to seven known. The Hodder-Bowers book feels the 1¢ and 10¢ are both equally rare, but in this instance, this cataloger comes down firmly on the side of Fred Reed. Mr. Mayer was unable to obtain a One Cent Brown's for his collection until this piece reached the market when Stack's sold the Western collection in June of 2004. Arnold Perl was also unable to obtain a One Cent Brown's in his dozen years of active collecting. This piece is a solid VF, with a medium brown case and somewhat lighter letter tops. The mica has one very minor disturbance at the top right but is essentially crystal clear, and the stamp is fresh and bright.
