    Bailey & Company, 5 cents, HB-46, EP-64, BC05. XF-AU. This is a wonderful opportunity to obtain this scarce Philadelphia merchant issuer. All denominations of this issuer's encased stamps are R.8 or R.9, the five cent being R.8 (5-10 known). This example is splendid. The stamp has good color and excellent centering. The mica is lightly crazed and very clear. The case is original, sound, with a rich brown color. This is the kind of example that graces the finest merchant type sets. Catalogs $1000+.
