    HB-62 EP-7 Scott-31 Reed-BT01 1¢ Brown's Bronchial Troches About New
    Numerical grade: 80case.85stamp.75mica. = 240
    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 beauty. The case is a solid AU, with natural two-tone tan color. The stamp is 100% fully fresh as well as rather well centered, and the mica is crystal clear, interrupted by only three tiny areas of crazing: two at the bottom edge and one at the top. My. Mayer paid $1955 for this piece over three years ago.
