    Lovely and Very Rare Fr. 190a

    Fr. 190a $10 1864 Compound Interest Treasury Note Very Fine. Fewer than two dozen examples of this number are known, and this is one of the better ones, the majority grading Fine or under. It's a nice natural note, with no sign of the repairs or restorations that are normally virtually universal for these larger-size notes that were weakened by the bronze overprint. This note had once been listed as repaired, but under very careful close inspection, we've not been able to spot any problems of any kind. If there's a well-hidden repair somewhere on this note, we sure can't find it. Few examples of Compound Interest Notes have survived with the eye appeal of this piece. And we would not be at all surprised if this were the best of the very short supply of Fr. 190a's.
