    Unique Ten Cent Silver Cased Experimental Piece

    HB-Unlisted EP-Unlisted 10¢ Experimental or Trial Piece Silver Case About New. Lot 639 from Stack's sale of the Western Collection in June of 2004. Previously from the FCC Boyd Collection. Stack's description read, in part, "The case is sound, and deeply toned in rich coin silver gray shade. The two-piece case being quite different from the Regular Issue Gault type, not only because it is made apparently in silver, but also because the back has been closed in a different fashion. Unique and unpublished before now." As with the other Experimentals offered here, no one knows their exact origin. This cataloguer has always believed them to be trial pieces or pre-production encasements made for Gault, by either Scoville or another manufacturer that he had been considering for production. In any event, an extraordinarily important rarity.
