Congratulations, Bruce!

My special issuance didn't have "Special Issuance" anywhere on it either, but Under "Limitations" it did say "Not valid for any class after September 30, 2006." That's the clue it's special issuance.

Under Limitations: “None”
The letter accompanying it did contain an admonition that if I ever become symptomatic for Afib, I’ll need to ground myself. Fair enough.
