Description & Analysis

The net sales of 1909 V.D.B. proofs have been in dispute during recent years, researchers interpreting the records differently and publishing conflicting figures. It's likely that the figure included herein is on the high side, as surviving examples are very scarce. Fully red gems are genuinely rare.
