ENCASED POSTAGE STAMP - Ayer's Sarsaparilla - To Purify
The Blood ad on reverse. In 1862 coinage was being hoarded and
with worry that there may be an issue, John Gault came up with
an idea and received a patent to make these stamp holders that
could be used as us coin determined by the price of the stamp it
contained with a thin sheet of mica protecting the stamp. This
example contains a 10 cent US stamp. The case is marked with
the above mentioned ad and is also embossed with "Pat. Aug 12,
1862 / J. Gault". Case still retains the original mica though be it
cracked as can be seen in the images.
