Ex Floyd Farley. From Mail Bid Sale No. 19, Jan. 1997, featuring selections from the Farley collection. This was lot 15. I noted Farley’s acquisition from “Loux” in Nov. 1971 and commented, … smooth, mark-free surfaces with sharp dentils and strong centers. Even light grey toning with golden highlights. I missed the telltale sign of an early die state: a horizontal die line through the loop of the 2 in the date.
Estimate: $600 to $800
