I'm amazed at how this book continues to climb...

 

Especially in the 4.5 grade! :o

 

Too bad I only have a 4.0. :sorry:

Strong logic, Wayne-tec.....It's have to say the universe of remaining copies is 3,500-4,000

 

My initial instinct was to say around 10,000 - 15,000 copies, but that doesn't seem to be too realistic. The majority of the copies we see made available are slabbed, at the very least over 50%.

 

If you doubled the total of slabbed copies, it would only total 3,600.

I think wayne tec is in the ball park at 10k copies...I believe I had at one point seen the print run somewhere in the 250K range?...surely 5-10% still exist today, as is the case with most early SA books...we were post paper drives, and already into the era of collecting...

 

the statement "the majority we see available are slabbed" is pretty indicative of the market...if folks decide to sell an AF15, they typically do slab it...but the number of copies "for sale" is not indicative of the number of copies out there that are raw that are "not for sale"

 

I know a collector in GA, that has (last time I was at his house) an entire short box of AF15's (all raw, probably 100+ of them)... I have seen hundreds of raw copies in travels, compared to maybe 10-20% that number slabbed

 

10K is probably a conservative # imo

I know that I will probably never slab my AF 15,surely there are many like me.

sweet book!

Here is mine. The price was right for a restored book, and the amount of work done was very little. There is a piece added to the bottom right corner which is the main area of color touch. Surprisingly the book was not cleaned. This could probably go up to a 9.0 with extensive work, but I would rather leave it as is.

For the record I'm a 3-time member:

 

af15two.jpg

 

a blue 2.5

 

 

 

af15one.jpg

 

a blue 3.0

hard to see, but it's a blue 5.0

 

:thumbsup: Had you down for the 2.5. Just added your 3.0. I assume your 5.0 is the previously reported VG+ raw?

 

If you don't mind, what's the page quality on your trio?

 

And a big CONGRATS on the mini-hoard: :hail: :hail: :hail:
