According to the catalog description, the sheet is “the second uncut sheet of brown backs known for the state and makes just 42 for the entire country. That total is for brown back sheets in general, not for $10, $10, $10, $20 sheets, which are far scarcer.”

The sheet was graded by the firm as Very Fine-Extremely Fine and has a few folds.
