Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help.

May I ask which auction sale you're referencing? And what edition number you have of the 500?

I know that Paul Lemperly's copy sold at Millea in 2009 for $1,000, and 1/500 sold at Freeman's in 2013 for $10,000, but I'm unsure of a $7,800 sale and none are showing up in any of my auction databases.

Sincerely,

Jennifer
