    Extremely Rare Burnett's 12¢ Encased

    HB-77 EP-142 12¢ Burnett's Cocoaine Very Fine to Extremely Fine.
    All Twelve Cents denomination Encased Postage stamps are desired, and having one is essential for a standard denomination type set. This example is very pleasing and, like all the Newman Collection pieces in this sale, new to the collecting community. Reed considers this type to be a Rarity-8 (5 to 10 known). Frederick Mayer and John J. Ford, Jr. each had a pair of these, which is a considerable achievement. There is a mica scratch across the center, but it is over a vibrant, perfectly centered stamp. The case still has traces of silvering in the letters and is pleasing color. This is a real beauty, and perhaps superior to the Mayer example we sold in 2007 for $2,070.

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
