This will be the topic of an article joint article by Kevin Andersen and Trish Kaufmann in the 1Q 2019 issue of the CP. With full original gum that has never seen a hinge—even in the margins—fresh with excellent color due to complete protection from light, usual edge faults and gum creasing usually found on large multiples, as well as gum staining at upper left and few spots at bottom.

Catalog value well exceeds $4,000 just as singles, much more as blocks, and should be roughly double premium for never hinged not taken into account - thus more realistically putting it well over $8,000 in catalog value. VERY RARE MULTIPLE. $4,000.
