    Theodore Roosevelt: The Imposing 2 1/8" Version of this Classic Rough Rider Beauty. An outstanding example, in rich, deep sepia, and retaining its original surface sheen. We would call it mint but for a few utterly trivial tiny surface scratches and a slight, shallow indentation near the edge at 9:30. We note these for strictest accuracy, but this most certainly is as fine as any example of this variety which we've ever encountered. This design has always been a great collector favorite; an example with significant condition issues fetched $1075 against a presale estimate of $400-600 in our June 2008 Americana auction.
