It's a great looking card and a very tough issue, so I'd be happy to have it either way!

Having said that I think I have a bit of a different take on it.

I've always felt in situations like that you could have a card with normal naturally heavily rounded corners, where essentially you have the same amount of lost card-stock at each corner, but the shape is evenly rounded. In these situations its just considered normal wear and cards like this can grade 1.5-2. but obviously because its more jagged and was torn it's looked at differently by collectors. But when you think about it you could have a more worn card with evenly well rounded corners on all 4 corners , resulting in more % of total card loss and still get the same or slightly higher grade (like 2.5).

I think it's up to the card owner whether they prefer a more evenly worn and rounded card or a less worn card with 3 sharp corners and one damaged one.

I also think that you have to give the extra large size cards more leeway in areas like this and compare a corner like this to a small card like a T206 with a similar issue. You need to think what the percentage of missing card stock is. A Ding or tear on a large card may look very large in person but if you take into account the total card stock loss in terms of percentage against a small issue card like a T or E card, the paper loss may not really be that big (percentage wise).

I think it presents very well. Great pose of him, and it sounds like it's rare.

I owned a T206 BL460 for years that had a missing corner, but was otherwise presentable. I was happy to own the card, especially due to it's rarity.

Enjoy owning the card, it's very nice.

Greg, that card is awesome. Pop 3 psa and pop 5 sgc. There are 8 known copies of this and you own one of them. I can see where the missing corner would bother some if this were say, a t206 Piedmont pop 2,000 (oh, and there are MANY ungraded t206s out there too) but that isn't the case here. Is it a 2? No, but who cares? Personally, I prefer rarity over condition, especially when the condition is fantastic other a missing 1/200th of the card.
Im not sure why a previous poster thinks that collectors choose not to grade NC's in particular, but I would love to hear his logic since NCs have sold at auction (and privately) for huge amounts of money. Not saying there aren't any raw out there, but I will bet there aren't many.

The grade is irrelevant. Great image of Matty. The notched corner is about the last thing you see. In any event with a rare card sometimes you gotta take what you can get.

The OP asked for an opinion and we gave one. I don't personally think the card is rare enough for me to stomach the corner missing. But that is just me and you . On some other cards I barely see it but on that one I just saw it and couldn't take my eyes off it. Hey, I have nice cards with chunks missing too. All that matters is you like the card. The other parts of it are very nice. I recently passed up a higher grade T205 Cobby due to a spec of tobacco on his head. We all have things we do and don't like. Each card is different to me.
