Graded PSA 5 EX. Up for grabs is an extremely clean example of Walter Johnson's T206 "Hands at Chest" variation. Near perfectly centered with immaculate, stain-free surfaces. The corners appear to be in EX to EX/MT shape without compromising their generally square appearances, while the right edge displays some minor traces of chipping, no doubt the catalyst for the seemingly conservative grade. Most impressive, however, is the exceedingly sharp image of "The Big Train," which features such bold and accurate registration that the image take on an almost smooth and even life-like appearance, not exactly typical of T206 lithography. Immensely appealing.
