    Description

    HB-UNL EP-95a 9¢ Feuchtwanger Strip Very Fine.
    This piece does not actually meet the definition of "Encased Postage Stamps" as seen in Hodder-Bowers, and it was not manufactured by Scovill using Gault's patent. However, these strips have a long history of inclusion in the category of Encased Postage. They were likely produced in New York City for the collector market in the early 1890s. Despite the "title," there is no actual connection between the pieces and the 1830s Dr. Feuchtwanger (of the famous "cent"). The name is used because the eagle and snake motif used on the case are reminiscent of the 1837 Hard Times token design, which was privately issued by Dr. Feuchtwanger. There are a few cracks in the mica, but all three stamps are clean and the case is a handsome, natural brown.
