DescriptionHB-79 EP-175 Scott-50 Reed-BK30 30¢ Burnett's Cocoaine Extremely Fine.
Numerical grade: 75case.20stamp.40mica = 135 The case of this very rare piece is a lovely dark tan, slightly darker behind the letters. It's really quite attractive, so why bother to look at the other side? The stamp, unfortunately, is the worst we've seen in this collection, and quite possibly the worst we've seen. The mica is considerably cracked and crazed. Nonetheless, this is an extreme rarity, with either two or three examples in the census. Reed's auction survey shows only seven appearances for 30¢ examples, a number that is generally indicative of one or two pieces.
