    Description

    HB-92 EP-108a Scott-62 Reed-CL10 10¢ Arthur M. Claflin Very Fine.
    Numerical grade: 60case.60stamp.80mica. = 200
    Reed lists this piece as an R-9 and comments, "Two known." We know of two pieces: Frederick Mayer acquired this example from Early American's February 2001 sale where it was Lot 771, and Stack's sold a piece in June 2004. The Reed book and the Stack's 2004 catalog both mention the existence of a third piece impounded in the Western Reserve Historical Society Collection. Interestingly, Reed's auction-census data show only three appearances in his 1891-1994 census period, a number that usually indicates a unique piece. This piece is quite respectable, with a sound case that has been lightly cleaned at one time and has a few minor spots. The stamp is a hair toned, with a little light soil, and the mica is perfectly clear, with just a few very minor crazes at the outer edges. The Stack's 2004 piece, which had a partially exposed stamp, realized $7475. This piece cost Frederick Mayer nearly twice as much to acquire as the Stack's piece realized. Stack's mentioned this example as the finer of the two in their 2004 description of the lesser encasement.
