    Magnificent Pink Fractional Currency Shield

    Pink Fractional Currency Shield. We have handled the majority of the pink shields known to exist, and we sold this one once before in June, 1995, where it was described as, "This is the first pink shield Currency Auctions of America has had the pleasure of offering. Its last public appearance was in the Superior Galleries' sale of the Buddy Ebsen Collection, June 2, 1987, where it brought $7975 in a much slower currency market. Of the perhaps one dozen pink shields in existence, we have personally examined seven, and this is distinctly the second finest of that group. The pink background color is excellent, and all the notes retain their original colors with the exception of the Red Backs, which are very slightly muted, and the back of the 25¢ Second Issue note, which has turned a bluish color as always on shields. There are two light creases in the body of the shield itself, and one tiny internal split not affecting any notes." The up-to-date census on pink shields has risen to about 20, but this remains the second finest example that we have seen.
