Just found this one in a wheat bag. Quite rare and thinking this is somewhere around EF-40-45. That doesn't seem like much, but at EF-40 BN it would be POP 4/2, and only 7 known examples in any of the MS grades. At EF-45 it would be POP 2/1. So worth finding, and maybe even worth grading although probably not.

Very nice! Didn't know it was so rare. My example is around EF-40 as well so nice to know!

Another great find. I MIGHT have noticed that double eye. Will the grime in the corners play a part in the grade?

Thanks folks! And I honestly have no idea how corner grime counts with PCGS. Would be a good question to have the answer to.
