The label correctly notes “cleaned.” The three Es in the legend lack their lower left serifs. This exceedingly rare die pair is one of 6 Red Book varieties for the year. Competition between die variety and Red Book collectors has driven the price of low grade and damaged examples to four-figures or thereabouts. The present offering is well circulated. Medium grey toning has taken hold after an improvident cleaning. Est. $500 to $1,000.
