Recent additions are later issues from #416-512 - many NH and gem centering - like this one:

What a beauty! And do I also spot a lay-out line?

What is that wandering line from the left design border through the top of Ben's head and continuing through the design border?

Very visual appearing stamp....
You grade as a XF-S.....so you say 95??
Looking at your back photo.....seems to be a large inclusion in the gum??

The inclusion is visible from the front as well, over the letter "A". Gorgeous stamp though, amazing centering and freshness.

Yeah, didn't notice the inclusion at first. Will probably have to reduce some. I see that wandering line now too and I do wonder about that. Hmm. Well this whole set is really well centered. This is not the only gem in the bunch. Take a look.

Not trying to be a Debbie Downer and I like the stamp but the line and inclusion, if that is what it is, would negate a high grade if a grade at all. Just being honest.
