The slight diamond cut affected centering which accounts for the grade. Mint or exceptionally close to mint in every other aspect.

More Information: The Black Swamp Find

Early in 2012, the most significant trading card find in hobby history emerged from a small Ohio town, neat individual player stacks of untouched cards, each banded by a short length of twine tied by a print shop employee a full century ago. Discovered in an attic in a box long forgotten beneath an ancient dollhouse, these stunningly pristine relics from the Dead Ball Era made their hobby debut in the August 2012 Platinum Night auction in Baltimore, providing the Heritage clientele with an opportunity outpacing even the most fanciful dreams of the pre-war trading card collector. Named for the damp landscape on the edge of Defiance, Ohio, where the cards served their one hundred years of solitude, the Black Swamp Find of 1910 E98's provides candy card collectors with the opportunity to add a scarce high-grade issue to their collection which was never available before.  Made famous by an appearance on NBC's "The Today Show" and just about every newspaper in the United States, the Black Swamp Find arises again to tempt the uncompromising collector in this Signature Auction.
