Description: Encased Postage Stamps
Scarce Five Cents John Shillito & Company of Cincinnati
EP-92, HB-218, S-162. Reed SH05. Five Cents. John Shillito & Co., Cincinnati. Very Fine.
Rated as Rarity-4 (31 to 40 known) according to Fred Reed. The fresh bold brown Thomas Jefferson stamp is very attractive, perfectly centered, viewed through mica is very clean having just some trivial natural surface laminations at the upper rim edges. The case is medium to deep charcoal in its patina color with some light verdigris and has a partial bright brassy central portion on the reverse. Quite scarce, this specimen being the first we've offered since 2009!
