    Fractional Currency Shield, With Pink Background.
    Fractional currency shields with pink backgrounds are the middle of the three shield types in terms of rarity. Approximately 20 pinks are known, compared to 10 green and 300-500 gray. The ever-important pink background is very visible. The notes have begun to show signs of aging, and the Second Issue 25ยข back has faded to a light blue as always seen. All four hand-signed notes bear the Colby-Spinner signature combination, including the Grant-Sherman Fr. 1273-SP which is found only on pink or green colored shields. Some of the corners of the notes are raised and torn or missing, and there are a few skinned areas on the shield back. The shield has been rematted with a bright, white mat that has been crudely cut and thankfully appears to not be adhered to the shield itself. As always, it is contained in a contemporary frame that is not a BEP issue.
