    Nice Gray Fractional Shield

    Fractional Currency Shield, With Gray Background Extremely Fine.
    A nicer than average gray Shield, this one hung for many years in the office of renowned Texas dealer, collector, and author Bob Medlar. The gray background is boldly printed and all the notes are bright except for the 25¢ Second Issue back, that almost always has faded to light blue. The four hand-signed notes are all Jeffries-Spinner with the Justice and Spinner 50¢ notes, the Grant-Sherman 15¢, and the Washington 10¢. There is very minimal water staining that is often seen as a result of damage that occurred while they were in storage at the BEP before being shipped off to banks. They were shipped flat and so any frame a shield is in is not original to the BEP. This frame is made of dark wood and has a gold leaf inner border. This is truly one of the nicer Gray Shields this cataloger has seen over the years.
