4 MS and 8 AU problem free examples have appeared the last 10 years for the 107a. There are several higher grade MS examples out there yet they have been in collections for extensive periods of time. Decent AU's also seem to mainly reside in collections rarely seeing the light of day. Even uncleaned XF examples can be tough
