Looking for info on this seed, any photos and why it didn’t see dirt?

Quinn has pictures in his '19 diary. It's unpredictable which seeds see dirt the following season (especially if <2000 lbs). One reason it wasn't grown could have been that a lot of people who picked up the Werner '19 lots at auction were after the 1885.

I planted the 1777 in 2020. It was one of my healthiest plants if not the healthiest of the 8 plants I had going out the gate. Things fell apart in a super dry no rain 30+ days straight 90+ degrees and super humid. On August fourth hurricane winds took down at least 60% of the plant and the plant went downhill since then and the main finally rotted at the stem hookup and any growth slowed to a stall or stopped. Even with all that and missing 6 weeks of good growing it taped about 1,450 pounds with good orange.
