Mike, I have no idea what it might be, but I note some 
characteristics--one is the paper-sheath below the bud.  This 
couldn't be a diploid could it?  Not many tets have paper sheaths, 
although it did occur--Snow Flurry for example has them.

Also the lack--or near lack--of conspicuous haft marks.  That also is 
unusual in early reds and burgandy colors.  One of the first to have 
really clean color was TECHNICOLOR and from it, TOMECO.  This 
burgandy may have kinship with TECHNICOLOR.  The quality was so 
unusual that Schreiners went on to build from this line of breeding 
with VITAFIRE and through its offspring POST TIME, almost all more 
recent reds.

Many reds and burgandies have purple or reddish leaf bases.  Is this 
one colored or plain?
