    Description

    Fr. 27 $1 1878 Legal Tender PMG Choice About Uncirculated 58 EPQ.
    A classic early error with a butterfly fold at the bottom left end. It's almost certainly ex-Grinnell, as the catalogue description fits this note perfectly, save for the denomination, which is listed as a $10 rather than a $1. However, the Grinnell note is listed with the $1 errors, and no early $10 butterfly folds are known. A simply lovely error.
    Ex-Albert A. Grinnell Collection sale, November, 1844, Lot 395, ex-Heritage FUN Sale, January, 2004, Lot 17773.
    From The Richard Merlau Collection of Large Size Errors, Part I
