But the good kind, not the parasite (unless you want to consider what it did to my wallet
I already had an example of RN-A11, but only the leftmost column (bank names and the revenue imprint) rather than the full document. Both are valued in Scott, with the full document being over 4x the value of just the left column ($1,100 vs. $250).
This example showed up on eBay
, I made an offer, and it was accepted.
It's called a tapeworm for the long wormlike string of revenue imprints at left.
I wouldn't go so far as to call it rare or even necessarily scarce, but it certainly isn't common. I've been looking for one that wasn't priced at full Scott or above for some time. There aren't many completed auction examples, and both Eric and Richard rarely have more than one example in inventory (at least that are made public at any rate).
This one is in lovely condition.
I don't understand why this one is RN-A11 when it preceded RN-A10 (my understanding is that the 3 additional banks on RN-A10 were added to the bottom of RN-A11).
Why are they ordered the way they are in Scott? Or is my understanding of their creation sequence inaccurate?
