DescriptionHB-95 EP-108 Scott-65 Reed-CO10 10¢ H. A. Cook Choice Extremely Fine.
The Ten Cent is the "common" Cook. Rated as an R-7 in Reed (eleven to fifteen known), the Hodder-Bowers reference concurs with, "About twelve 10¢ pieces are known." And the Stack's June 2004 sale also agreed with "Rare: while this may be the most collectable of the two Cook encasements, the total number of 10¢ pieces known is still under fifteen." It's an unusually nice example, with a natural mid-brown case with lighter highlights on the letters. The mica is very substantially clear, with just a short crack between the "N" and "T" of "CENTS," at the bottom right. The stamp is centered a bit to the right but is very nearly fully fresh. With this merchant's producing only two denominations for a combined total of fewer than 20 known, this is a very difficult piece to obtain for a merchant set.
