One of Two Known Claflin 10 Cents Arthur M. Claflin. 10 Cents. HB-92, EP-108a, S-62. Choice Extremely Fine. Having two Claflin Encased in a single collection is reserved for only the finest of holdings and this 10 Cent offering along with the previous lot will certainly grab the attention of all familiar with this numismatic segment. This piece was in the Ford holdings where it sold for $6,500 and later within the Kelly collection when it fetched $16,100 in 2012. The other confirmed piece was sold in the Mayer collection in 2007 bringing $12,650. Comparing the two pieces confirms that this offering shows the more attractive case and stamp while the other enjoys better mica. A crack at the top resulted in a small loss of mica which exposes the stamp but when considering the high rarity, this setback can easily be dismissed.
Ex. John J. Ford Jr. Collection, Part IV, Lot 452. 2004; Ex. William H. Kelly Collection, Lot 15560. 2012.
