Of the 12 graded, there's a pop of 1. Almora has a pop of 4.

Here's what I sent to another member, which includes my best assessment of the card:

Corners: All sharp under 12x loupe. Bottom left corner under 20x loupe shows a very slight overhang of card stock.

Edge: no indents, uniform to my eye, no lifting or chipping, no notching. Photos follow:

















I think that this one has a good chance at a 9 on the centering. If so, I think the surface grade, corners, and edges pull it up. At the very least, it's one of the better ones I've seen.
