DescriptionHB-63 EP-38 Scott-32 Reed-BT03 3¢ Brown's Bronchial Troches Extremely Fine.
Numerical grade: 70case.75stamp.75mica. = 220 Attributed by Mr. Mayer as Lot 301 from the September 1967 sale of the Lilly Collection. The piece was not photographed in that sale, but all of our consignor's verifiable pedigrees were correct, and we have no doubt that this one is also. The case is a solid XF, with considerable silvering remaining behind the letters. The date "1862" has been very lightly scratched onto the case, but it is all but invisible without a glass. The stamp has nearly all of its original color, and the mica is perfect save for a small crazed area below the left tab. None of Brown's encasements is particularly common. This 3¢ is rated as an R-6 by Reed, indicating sixteen to 20 known.
