    HB-97 EP-41 3¢ Dougan About New
    From our 2007 Auction of the Frederick Mayer Collection, where it was described, "The case is a beauty. It's fully AU, with a glossy, deep mahogany surface with natural, deep red highlights behind the hat and letters. Viewed from the hat side, this is the nicest of Frederick Mayer's Dougans... don't turn it over. The stamp is faded and badly stained, with three dark areas killing its appearance. The mica has a few cracks and minor crazes. If you are forming a merchant set for exhibit, this piece has the look of a $5000 encasement from the merchant side." In 2007 it realized $920, and in today's market it is still easily worth over face value.
