Fr. 174 $100 1880 Legal Tender Choice New. One of Jim O'Neal's most recent acquisitions which he acquired as Lot 1304 of last year's Memphis sale for very nearly $100,000. It is the only uncirculated example listed in the Gengerke census of the only sixteen pieces listed of this type. Not a single other note is graded higher than Extremely Fine. This piece is finest known by quite a wide margin. When all the 1880 $100's, including different types and signature combinations, are combined, less than twenty are listed in the census as Uncirculated and six of those are permanently impounded. This evening's results may well indicate that Jim acquired quite a bargain when he purchased this note just last spring.
