Very Rare Arthur M. Claflin Five Cents Arthur M. Claflin. 5 Cents. HB-91, EP-71, S-61. Choice Extremely Fine. One of the rarest issuers of Encased Postage Stamps are these Arthur M. Claflin pieces and the current example is one of a believed two to three known with only two confirmed by us. The other example was the Ford piece which later traveled through the Mayer collection, selling for $21,850 in the later stated collection. Although the Ford piece is of slightly higher quality, the current example is no slouch in terms of appeal. Attractive golden brown color of the case and frame and strong definition of the wording. The mica is largely free from distractions while just some light wrinkling of the otherwise bold stamp. One of the most important piece in this collection and last sold in the Tannenbaum collection in 2012 where it brought $15,275.
Ex. Steve Tanenbaum Collection, Lot 7068. 2012.
