A magnificently toned example of this scarce die marriage. A kaleidoscope of iridescent colors graces the surfaces. Striking weakness at the rims and in the drapery folds is typical. Early die states of the O.136, with the top of an 8 in the dentils, are rare, with a BHNC rarity rating of R.6-.
Estimate: $2,000 to $2,500
