VERY FINE APPEARANCE. AN EXTREMELY RARE EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT ENCASEMENT FROM BENJAMIN F. MILES, OF PEORIA, ILLINOIS.

This is the first example of either of the B.F. Miles encasements (1c or 5c) we have offered at auction since keeping computerized records and in our Rarities sales dating back to 1964. Only two of the 1c and fewer than ten of the 5c are known.

FINE. AN EXCEEDINGLY RARE 3-CENT ENCASEMENT ISSUED BY JOHN W. NORRIS.

This specimen was described in the Ford sale catalogue (Stack's 6/23/2004, lot 565) as "Choice Extremely Fine" and "Certainly one of the nicest known." We suppose this is true, considering there are fewer than five reported examples.

2483   ImageSchapker & Bussing, Evansville Ind., 12c Black (EP159). Stamp with intense shade and some slight soiling, case a uniform golden brown, mica remarkably intact with a few tiny flaws at edges

VERY FINE. THIS 12-CENT SCHAPKER & BUSSING ENCASED POSTAGE MAY WELL BE UNIQUE. ONE OF THE GREAT RARITIES OF ENCASED POSTAGE COLLECTING.

Schapker & Bussing was one of two firms in Evansville, Indiana, that ordered encased postage from Gault. The partnership between Bernard Schapker and John W. Bussing, both German immigrants and employees of Samuel Embich & Co., was started in 1860. Their business was located on Main Street near the Ohio River. The firm prospered until the Panic of 1873 caused its failure.

The Ford sale catalogue (Stack's 6/23/2004, lot 598) described this as "Possibly unique". The Stack's describer thought that this piece and the Dunham piece were the same, which would, to everyone's best knowledge, make this unique.

VERY FINE. A RARE AND DIFFICULT ENCASED POSTAGE STAMP, WITH AN ESTIMATED POPULATION OF FIVE TO TEN.
