    Spectacular Green Fractional Currency Shield

    Green Fractional Currency Shield. To our best knowledge there are less than a dozen Green Shields in existence, and we have personally examined eight of them. This is the second finest that we've handled, second only to the Milt Friedberg example which we sold in January 1997. The green background color on this Shield is as close to perfect as it gets, with all of the fine design elements clear and intact. The eagle and stars at the top of the Shield are as boldly green as the back of a large size note, without the slightest hint of fading. The great majority of the notes are nearly fully bright, with the two exceptions being the 25¢ Second Issue back, which is always faded on Shields, and the dark curtain 3¢ note which is lightly stained and has a small tear. The Shield is fully wide on its original paper all the way out to the edges, and exhibits only very minor water staining at the bottom that touches only the two 3¢ faces. It is housed in a period frame, with the inner surface gold leafed and the wide outer frame a dark hardwood. A spectacular item that is destined to wind up on the den or office wall of a serious fractional aficionado.
