Ok, I'm aware I can be flamed by you and won't blame you for doing so, but here is my newest addition to my collection.

I just couldn't resist (even more than pickle.69 and his Summer Shivan) !

I am let to believe by the image above that somebody indeed went forward and defaced an authentic textless near mint+ or better Lightning Bolt test print with a hand-written text all over the text box area in black ink. Please - PLEASE - tell me I am wrong.

if you look closely you can see the shadow under the ink, Ende wrote on a sleeve, you can see the edges of it just to the edge of the (non)text box.

panic attack averted Ralph.

Haha, Dilligaf got it right !

Ralph I would have authorized you to ban me from the boards if I had written on the actual card !!!

Thanks for the congrats everybody.

I didn't get the card through a direct second offer on that auction, though it did all start from there.

Dragsamou: I did consider all possible "wife-repercussions" before making my move, and I decided to avert it through a nice X-Mas present for her... now I'm totally broke for a while, but at least we're both very happy ! ;-D

I interpreted it as a factory cut line, but now I see that it is indeed the edge if a card sleeve. Kudos, ende73, for a truly rare acquisition and your diplomatic approach in order to get ;-)

This makes me wonder how many distinct specimens of the textless foil Lightning Bolt are known to be in public hands. There's the ende73 one. There's one that inca911 owned, although I'm not sure if he still owns it (who knows - maybe this is the inca911 one!)

Establishing a pedigree, incidentally, would sorta be fun :)

The one I used to own is signed by Chris Rush, so this one is different. It is generally believe there are 10 or 11 textless bolts out there.

Hi,
Hope all's well with all of you. What's the value of the textless lightning bolt?
