    Rare and Important Large Size Foldover Error - Ex-Grinnell

    Foldover Error Fr. 73 $5 1880 Legal Tender PMG Choice About Unc 58.
    A truly wonderful large size error, this is both a major foldover and an obstruction error, with only a small part of the large seal showing that is not printed on the folded over portion. This is a beautiful piece which traces its provenance to the famed Albert Grinnell collection which was sold by Barney Bluestone. This note appeared as Lot 408 in the November 25, 1944 auction where it realized all of $26. We expect this great error note to do a bit better this evening.
