Extremely Rare F. Buhl & Company 12 Cents F. Buhl & Company. 12 Cents. HB-71, EP-141, S-42. About Uncirculated. A remarkably rare Encased Postage Stamp and one that travelled through several significant collections including Ford and Mayer. The Reed reference shows a scant five auction appearances for the denomination and we are inclined to believe that this may be one of just 2 or 3 known. This item has sold twice in the past 2 decades and both times it has realized just around $6,000. The quality is all there with clear mica with just some minor edge distractions, a beautifully centered stamp and a sound case with a nice olive brown tone.
Ex. John J. Ford Jr. Collection, Part IV, Lot 424. 2004; Ex. Frederick R. Mayer Collection, Lot 12732. 2007.
