Amazing rarity with the only other multiples recorded being 2 or 3 abc strips, & even as a single hardly ever seen, with a single example appearing on the market only once every several years. Hinged singles have previously sold at auctions at $2500 level & retail nowdays is around $3000 ea, and MUH abc strips would be $10,000+ each, while the value of the unique acccbc bottom strip is difficult to calculate. Offerred at a very conservative reserve - counting the M singles at only $1000 ea, the MUH abc strips at only $4000-$5000 each, and the bottom strip of 6 at only $8000. An amazing item for an advanced exhibition collection, or as a major investment item, or for splitting up & resale. 2019 Ceremuga AIEP photo cert. (30) (P)
