    Fr. 1227 3¢ Third Issue Invert PCGS Apparent Very Fine 35.
    An extremely rare invert with a total census of either two or three. This example has received the Apparent grade for stains and repairs. The stains are minor and the repair is invisible to us. The focus among fractional collectors has been on regular issue notes in high third party grade of late. Thirty years ago, it was all about inverts and little focus was on regular issue notes save for the major rarities. This note would actually have realized more money in 1980 than it will today. Buying out of favor rarities has generally proven to be a good move in paper money. This note certainly fits that description.
