    HB-9 EP-96 Scott-5 Reed-AC10SA 10¢ Ayer's Cathartic Pills Short Arrows Choice About New.
    Numerical grade: 90case.80stamp.75mica. = 240

    A lovely piece, with a light brass case that has about 80% of its original silvering. The stamp is fully fresh, and the mica just about as perfect as these ever come. While not important to the value of the piece, an interesting aside is the unusually boldly struck back, which shows detail in the arrowheads as well as both arrow shafts. On the short-arrows variety, the right-hand shaft is generally weak, and the left-hand shaft non-existent. This piece shows both, although the left is quite weak. A significantly rare piece in this grade.
