Rare Ribbed Frame Drake's Five Cents Drake's Plantation Bitters. 5 Cents, Ribbed Frame. HB-103, EP-75, S-72a. About Uncirculated. A stunning rarity in this significant collection of Encased Postage Stamps. The ribbed frame Five Cent Drake's piece is generally regarded with a census of three pieces. The current example was within both the Ford and Mayer collections with the most recent realization from the later holding when it brought $3,320 in 2007. Bold ribbing on the frame is detected and nice color of the case heightens the appeal. Just some minor crazing of the mica at the bottom and a stamp that is bold and highly detailed. A significant offering of this rare variety and one with an illustrious pedigree.
