Description: Encased Postage Stamps
Twelve Cents "Lord & Taylor" New York Hi Rarity-8
EP-153, HB-172, S-125, Reed-LT12. Twelve Cents. LORD & TAYLOR, New York. Plain Frame. Extremely Fine.
Rated as Hi Rarity-8 (5 to 10 known) according to Fred Reed. An important Encased Postage Stamp "Key" and Twelve Cents denomination. There are estimated to be no more than Six Known of this significant rarity. This is a very collectable example,that is very clean and defect-free but for a a small mica surface void at Washington's right eye. The black George Washington stamp is very clean well centered. The mica has some light surface lamination at lower left. The encasement itself easily grades Choice EF as all details of the legends are sharp and defect-free with natural chestnut color. An excellent opportunity for Encased Postage Stamp collectors.
