I do know that it was ironically destroyed in a fire!

What I heard was that one copy was lost in a house fire. Kind of ironic, huh?

Interesting timing. Alex Berman had just asked, over on FB, what these are going for nowadays.

Thanks for the update, Mr. Bruce.

It was reported on thedarktower.org that it sold for 27K before buyers premium. It was reported by a losing bidder.

It looks like I was mistaken :oops: when I posted the $19,500 figure I just went back & signed in & in fact the final price with BP was $33,750. :o
It makes me wonder :?: what the Suntup 26 lettered MISERY would bring as it is truly a better production.
