High Grade Burnett's Standard Cooking Extracts Encased Postage

SOLD

Details

(1862) Encased postage. Burnett's Standard Cooking Extracts. 5¢. HB-83, EP-70. Extremely Fine. A superb encasement from this popular issuer, with a surprisingly amount of silvering surviving around the inscription on the back of the case. The rest of the case shows good brassy color with no spots, only some trivial hairlines. The five-cent Thomas Jefferson stamp also retains good color and shows excellent centering, though a vertical streak of crazing on the mica is present. The crazing is not as severe as the image may suggest, and it remains translucent through indirect light. Burnett, based in Boston, issued two different kinds of encasements, one for his Standard Cooking Extracts and one for his Cocoaine Kalliston. The five cent denomination, a stand-in for the silver half dimes that had disappeared from circulation by 1862, appears to have been among the most popular.
