Extensive restoration includes rebuilt spine, color touch, and pieces added. This copy comes in a handsome custom-made case. Overstreet notes, "A Fair condition copy sold for $2,901 in August 2004. A restored app VF sold for $10,500 in 2005. A copy in FN+ (spine intact) and loose back cover sold for $17,000 in 2006." Overstreet lists only GD 2.0 and FN 6.0 values. Overstreet 2011 FN 6.0 value = $14,000.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
