    Description

    HB-69 EP-68 Scott-40 Reed-BU01 5¢ F. Buhl & Co. Very Fine.
    Numerical grade: 60case.70stamp.80mica. = 210
    Although the case is problem free, it exhibits far more actual circulation wear than almost any encasement we've seen. The stamp has excellent color, and the mica is problem free save for very minor crazing at its outer edges and the typical circulation-caused rubs to its surface. The color of the stamp and clarity of the mica is amazing for a heavily circulated piece. This was previously Lot 1017 from the Stack's sale of the Perl Collection, and prior to that is appeared in a February 1965 Herst auction. A very rare piece, considered R-8 by Reed, this cataloger and the Hodder-Bowers book.
    From The Frederick Mayer Collection
