A very cool and very early Grateful Dead original handbill from a benefit show at the Fillmore in 1966. Speculation exists regarding whether or not this concert actually happened as many Grateful Dead archivists claim the event "may have been cancelled". Interest in CGC graded handbills is exploding.
