DescriptionHB-77 EP-142 Scott-48 Reed-BK12 12¢ Burnett's Cocoaine Very Fine.
Numerical grade: 50case.75stamp.70mica. = 195 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 has two, and the Western collection had two others. The case on this piece has been highly polished in the T. James Clarke style. The mica is above average, with just a few minor crazes and separations that become visible in angled light. The stamp is centered a bit to the lower right, but it is fresh and attractive. Mr. Mayer pedigreed this piece to a February 1987 Siegel sale.
