    Fr. 1381 50c Fifth Issue Original Pack of 20 Gem New. Clearly identifiable as an original pack as the notes have perfectly matched edges for color and square up ideally. Every note is from either the D or L plate position and only three different plate numbers appear. The band is original with the black "TEN DOLLARS" in the Bureau's printed ornate style. The band has two small scotch tape reinforcements at the ends to either repair splits or keep it from splitting. Although these Crawford bundles are the most common of the original fractional packs, there are likely less than twenty in existance and only one or two reach the market each year. The top and bottom notes are slightly aged but the remaining 18 are bright and all the notes grade Choice or Gem based solely on centering, with the majority fully reaching the Gem grade. (Total: 20 notes)
