    HB-77 EP-142 Reed-BK12 12¢ Burnett's Cocoaine About New.
    Reed considers this piece to be an R-8, indicating five to ten known, a number with which we are in agreement. We suspect the actual census is in the seven-or-eight range. Mr. Mayer's collection had two, and the Western Collection had two others. This is one of the two Western Collection pieces. The case is fully AU, and a glossy medium brown, wholly free of problems. The mica is crystal clear, with only extremely minor separations at the outer edges. The stamp is well centered and bright, but it has some brown pen writing across Washington's face. The catalogers of the Western Collection felt this was a pen cancellation, and they may well have been correct.
