    HB-UNL EP-95a 9¢ Feuchtwanger Strip Extremely Fine.
    While not actually encased postage stamps, and not manufactured by Scovill under Gault's patent, these strips have a long history of collectibility in the realm of encased postage. They were likely produced in New York City for the collector market in the early 1890s. Despite the name, there is no actual connection between the pieces and Dr. Feuchtwanger. The name is simply the result of the fact that the eagle and snake vignette that were used on the case are reminiscent of the 1837 Hard Times token design, which was a product of Dr. Feuchtwanger. This is a particularly nice example, with brightly colored stamps, a mica with no flaws, and an attractive, chocolate brown case. Our consignor has owned this piece since he won it at auction almost thirty years ago.
