    $2 1880 Legal Tender Face and Back Proofs

    Fr. 56 Hessler 166 $2 1880 Legal Tender Face and Back Proofs PMG Gem Uncirculated 66 EPQ. Hessler mentions only a face design and an unrecorded plate letter for this 1880 $2 Legal design. This leads one to believe that this is possibly a unique pair of face and back design proofs. According to Hessler the face design is an India paper proof mounted on card. We believe this is also the composition of the back proof. The face also has plate letter B along with serial number A00000. The margins are wide and balanced on all four sides and the inks are ideal. This beautiful proof face and back pair is well preserved and encapsulated in a PMG multi-note holder.
