We should be hearing back from Paramount today to get further clarification in regards to where this script originated.
So far, we have found out that the #48 corresponds to the actor who it was assigned to. Also, this script is actually one of the 1st drafts. This particular one was only used for less than 30 days prior to the issue of the 3rd draft which was used for shooting. Another script just like this one has been found at Bauman Rare Books.
It sold for $40,000, however, that one was signed. More information about this particular script can be found in their description as well.
This is a very rare find and we are pleased to be able to find it a new home!
Good luck offerding!
