Despite the condition, still an incredible find! These types of "attic finds" are getting fewer and farther between.

That is amazing. The owner of the card never needed/wanted the money the card would bring. Apparently he never mentioned the card to anyone but his lawyer, or the card would alteast have been known to have existed. Thats a pretty big secret to hold since 1936. Glad to see the money will go to good use! Thanks for posting the link.
