File this under “Yes, I know it’s pricey, but I just HAD to have it!”
I already have several examples of R5b with major double transfer (T5), but this is the first one I have ever seen where the R5b is imperforate vertically rather than horizontally. As with all of the pert perforates that can be found imperforate in both directions, the examples that are imperforate vertically are far more scarce than the examples imperforate horizontally.
Add to that the fact that it is used with a Californaia state revenue on a piece of a Wells Fargo document, and it’s just a superb aesthetic piece (in my opinion). Given the comparatively unique combination of attributes, I was quite happy to pay the elevated price.
