Description

Graded 20 Fair 1.5 by SGC. Those pre-war caramel hobbyists with an eye for the obscure will assuredly covet the offered 1911 E94 George Close Candy Eddie Grant with a reverse Your Out! If You Don't Eat Close's Oppie Dildocks overprint. Only a handful of such E94 specimens from the Cambridge, Massachusetts manufacturer are nestled in private collections and even fewer have been made available for public sale. The World War I hero emerges from a blue backdrop that presents exceptionally well for the technical grade. Moderate corner wear along with edge layering and horizontal creasing does not seriously impact the overall presentation of this antiquity. The all-important reverse blue stamping is bold and has endured the century in remarkable condition.
