Gottfredsons "lost" painting

So, you think you've seen all of Floyd Gottfredson's watercolor paintings of Mickey Mouse?
Well, here's one you might not have seen before:

The above piece is not in Willits auction catalouge. Looks like a test version for one of the Phantom blot paintings. Looking colosely you can see that it has tears and wrinkles, so I guess that Gottfreson wasn't satisfied with it and junked it. But someone saved it and put it up on eBay some years ago. I didn't get it so all I have to show is this scan from a printed eBay page.
Still, better than nothing.
Anyone who knows who owns it? Would be nice to see it published.
