Actually Phil, this would be considered poor condition as the front cover is separated.

Nevertheless, it "should" still fetch $5,000.00 or more with one big caveat, the market is severely depressed.

Keeping my eye on it for the guide revision in December...

Only two bidders: one cut out after $2,000.00; the other had to keep bidding until the "reserve" was met at $4,500.00 (smart seller).

As I stated, it's a depressed market (generally speaking) and the winning bid got a good deal.

Thanks Philip...very interesting! I have a REPRINT of it...the colours and appearance looks exactly the same!!
