    HB-84 EP-106 Scott-55 Reed-BE10 10¢ Burnett's Standard Cooking Extracts Choice About New.
    Numerical grade: 80case.75stamp.85mica. = 240
    An interesting piece and in outstanding condition. The case is essentially flawless and very high grade, with 80% of its silvering remaining. Of special interest on this piece is that the silvering that remains covers the center and left area of the case, without a trace at the right. The sharp demarcation between the two areas makes it almost certain that the right-hand side had never been silvered. The silvering (actually, tinning - but common usage has always been "silvering") on Encased Postage was applied to the cases prior to assembly. The exact process is unclear, but the cases that have silvering on the outside are always fully silvered on the inside. This piece was simply partially silvered. The stamp is centered a tad high, but it is fresh and attractive. The mica is free from cracks or crazes and exhibits only minor surface marks commensurate with light circulation. It is crystal clear under both direct and angled light. An outstanding example for type or denomination.
