Accompanied by the original mailing envelope from Edison’s New Jersey laboratory, and a certificate of authenticity from the Bruce Murray Collection. In fine condition, with a couple small creases to either side of Cobb’s signature, and some mild toning to Mack’s. Auction LOA Steve Grad/PSA/DNA and R&R COA.
