Awesome Spread Eagle Hundred
Fr. 167a $100 1863 Legal Tender Choice New. When last on the auction block in 2000, this stately Spread Eagle $100 realized $88,000. A few years prior to that, we had the pleasure of handling this piece and at that time described it, "This flawless Spread Eagle note traces its history to a Lyn Knight 1977 fixed price list. It then appeared in a Stack's 1989, CAA's first sale in November of 1990, and the Andrew Shiva Sale in May of 1995. Seven uncirculated Spread Eagles are known for all six Friedberg numbers in total. Of these, one is in a museum and three have been off the market for several decades. This is one of only two uncirculated Spread Eagles that have reached the auction market since 1947. It's fully Choice, with exceptional color and clarity of printing. The centering is outstanding for the issue, with all the margins clear of the design; in fact, were the centering just a bit better, this note would be fully Gem. It's also blessedly free of the usual edge problems and subsequent repairs that plague thin-paper issue. This beautiful design is the classic of our early Federal notes, and it is missing in high grade from most major collections. We are very pleased to have the opportunity to offer this lovely note to a cadre of collectors who have never had the opportunity to purchase its equal." Census figures have changed only slightly since that time, and opportunities to purchase Choice Uncirculated Spread Eagles are counted in groups of years rather than months.
