    HB-86 EP-143 Scott-56 Reed-BE12 12¢ Burnett's Standard Cooking Extracts Very Fine.
    Numerical grade: 50case.75stamp.70mica = 195
    The case has been brightly polished in the Clarke style, the stamp has excellent color but is centered a bit to the right, and the mica shows a short crack at the bottom left and a few separations between layers. This Twelve Cent Burnett's cooking is a rare piece, rated as an R-9 by Reed, indicating five to ten examples known. We feel that five or six is the actual number, as did the Stack's June '04 cataloger. The Hodder-Bowers book states, "The 12¢ denomination is very rare."
