Sale Number 1227, Lot Number 2418, Drs.

Stamp with fresh color, slight mica wrinkling and lamination at left

VERY FINE. AN EXCEPTIONAL EXAMPLE OF THE VERY RARE AERATED BREAD COMPANY ONE-CENT ENCASED POSTAGE.

The Aerated Bread Co. was located on the corner of Lafayette Place and 4th Street in New York City. The firm was based on the novel "aerated" bread process, but it folded after two years. Aerated Bread Co. produced only two denominations of encased postage -- 1c and 5c -- but the 5c is believed to be unique; therefore, the only practical way to represent this firm is with one of the 11-15 examples of the 1c value.

VERY FINE. AN ENORMOUSLY RARE 24-CENT ENCASED POSTAGE STAMP FROM BUHL AND COMPANY.

The Reed census reports seven known, but this figure seems far too high. This example, which has been certified genuine by both ANACS and The Philatelic Foundation, is one of the great rarities of encased postage.
