    Very Rare Pink Background Fractional Currency Shield

    Fr. 1382 Fractional Currency Shield, With Pink Background.
    Approximately two dozen Fractional Currency Shields are known extant with the pink printed background. The pink inks, which are the most susceptible to light, are as bold as we have seen on any of the pink Shields. They are sharply contrasted against the surrounding background. Fractional Shields were stored in the basement of the Treasury before being sold. A flood affected the vast majority of Treasury Shields, which show varying degrees of water stains. The bronzing on the Second and Third issue notes is attractive. Some muting of the red and green printed backs is seen, as well as some general toning of the banknote paper.
