    Unlisted 1862 $1000 Legal Tender Face Proof

    Fr. 186 Hessler UNL $1000 1862 Legal Tender Face Proof PCGS Apparent About New 50.
    Given the excessive rarity of this note in issued form, owning a Face Proof is not a bad way to go if you want some kind of representation in your collection for this design. Unlike the Hessler listing, this face proof is printed on India paper but not mounted on cardstock. PCGS grades this example Apparent About New 50 noting small edge tears and edge damage. Even with these minor imperfections in mind, consider that this opportunity does not present itself with any frequency. We last offered this example nearly a decade ago when it brought $5,175. With the renewed interest in federal proofs today, that number should be surpassed without too much difficulty.
