Ex Morton. With 2009 P.S.E. certificate (Superb 98; SMQ $11,000.00). A 2009 P.F. certificate graded XF-Superb 95 no longer accompanies -- but we feel P.S.E. got it right with this stamp. Superb 98 is the highest grade awarded in the P.S.E. Population Report, and it is shared by only one other, offered in the previous lot
