Jaques 1849 Staunton Hand-signed Label

One of my five labels that were actually hand-signed by Howard Staunton.  Almost all Jaques Staunton sets have a facsimile signature, except for the very early ones.  This label looks very similar to the facsimiles, but it is definitely different upon close comparison.  An expert has verified that it is hand-signed with a flourish and hand-numbered.
