Denis Loring: According to Steve Tompkins' recent reference, 31 examples of this famous rarity are known. I'd guess there are a few low-grade ones yet to be discovered. The finest seen is a gem Proof with a pedigree tracing all the way back to Levick. Two Mint States are next, followed by two AU's (one from Norweb 1538) and four XF's, including Eliasberg 1386. More than half of the known specimens grade VG or lower.
