DescriptionHB-72 EP-162 Scott-43 Reed-BU24 24¢ F. Buhl & Co. Extremely Fine.
Reed's auction census shows seven appearances for this denomination, all of which may well have been this piece. Frederick Mayer considered it to be unique, and there was no example in the Western Collection, Perl, Dunham, Lilly or any other collection we can locate save for Robert A. Siegel's May 1982 sale, which was where this piece came from. The case is a natural light golden brown with some darker toning on the front tabs, the stamp is just a touch off its full color, and the mica is very nearly perfect, with just the most minute crazing at its outer edges. Unique to our best knowledge, and an incredible opportunity for the advanced specialist.
From The Frederick R. Mayer Collection
