    Pleasing Dougan 1¢

    HB-96 EP-12 1¢ Dougan Very Fine. Dougan is a rare merchant, with only about 30 examples known for all denominations combined. About ten examples of this One Cent denomination have been traced, and this piece is safely in the top half for condition. Dougan is the only merchant in the Encased Postage series that has an illustration on the case. The mica on this piece is very nearly perfect, with only a few surface marks. The stamp, while not fully bright, has retained strong color. The case itself is a nice natural brass color, flawed only by two small dents at the top: one above the "U" in "DOUGAN," and the other right on the rim.
