October 2009 Auction

Up for auction is an extraordinary example of Carl Hubbell's 1933 Goudey issue #234 that has been evaluated at the NM/MT 8 level by SGC. MINT bottom corners combine with NM/MT top points to join neat MINT edges around a resplendent obverse boasting significantly above grade features throughout. The centering borders on perfection, with just the slightest inclination for the west border, while the central image flaunts perfect registration against a predominantly clean backdrop showing just a few micro-flecks of print, perfectly acceptable for even a MINT 9 grade. A markedly appealing example of an iconic '33 Goudey issue, ranking among the finest 3 copies on record at SGC (from 80+ submissions) and straddling the border of the next grading tier.
