The Anson page has some creasing along the edges (which do not affect the image area). The Ward has some minor surface wear. Graded as cards, these are technically in Very Good condition, but are beautiful examples ideal for display. Diameter: 8.25 inches. Each framed to total dimensions of 12.5 x 12.5 inches. Total 2 pages. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$800. SOLD FOR $1,856.00
