    HB-UNL EP95a 9c "Feuchtwanger" Strip Choice About New. Long collected as part of the encased postage series, these 9c pieces were not manufactured by Scovill under Gault's patent. They were most likely produced in New York City for the collector market in the early 1890s. There is no actual connection between this piece and Dr. Feuchtwanger. The name is simple the result of the eagle and snake vignette used on this piece being reminiscent of the 1837 hard times token design, which was a product of Dr. F. In any event, this is one of the nicest example we've had of this type. It is totally free of flaws with a 100% perfect mica and a glossy virtually uncirculated case.
