    Rare Pink Fractional Currency Shield

    Pink Fractional Currency Shield. There are perhaps two dozen Pink Currency Shields in existence, and this is the seventh we've offered in our 33 sales. As with virtually all Pink and Green Shields, all four hand autographed Third Issue notes are signed by Colby and Spinner and the rare hand signed Colby-Spinner Grant-Sherman is particularly nice. The Shield has been cut around the periphery of the pink engraving and is reframed in a handsome modern wood frame. The pink background color is outstanding, and is actually more of a dark lavender than the normally seen pink. We've seen one other in this shade, and suspect that it was the original color of all the Pink Shields with the lighter toned examples having turned from exposure to light over the years. The back of the 25¢ Second Issue has faded slightly, as is virtually always the case on shields, and the dark curtain 3¢ shows some light aging. All the other notes are fully bright examples with flashy bronze and ideal color. Were it not cut down, this would be one of the very finest Pink Shields in existence. As it lays, it will still likely exceed the five figure mark.
