Graded NM-MT 8 by PSA. This is the ONLY example graded at this level with none higher! Stunning ultra high-grade T206 example of Nap Rucker/portrait (Brooklyn Superbas) with the very desirable Sovereign 150 advertising reverse. Sovereign is a scarce back, certainly not in the same league as Drum or Uzit, but very unusual and seen far less often than the standard Piedmont or Sweet Caporal advertising back. The offered example is bright, crisp, and clean, with four sharp corners and centering slightly to the left, with a slight diamond cut along the top border. The important Sovereign 150 advertising reverse is boldly printed and well centered. This is an ideal specimen that would be noteworthy for its high grade even with a more frequently encountered Piedmont or Sweet Caporal reverse but is all the more significant for its unusual back. Reserve $500. Estimate (open).
