    Rare $100 Legal Proof Pair

    Fr. 165 Hessler 1120 $100 1862 Legal Tender Face Proof PMG Choice Uncirculated 63, PC.
    Fr. 165-165a Hessler 1121 $100 1862 Legal Tender Back Proof PMG Choice Uncirculated 64 EPQ.
    From our 2006 FUN Signature Auction where the descriptions read, "This plate letter B face proof sports serial number 00000 in red ink. Hessler only mentions a plate C note with this format for this design. The example presented here is printed on light card stock with six punch cancels through the printed signatures of Chittenden and Spinner. Handling signs include a corner tip fold and a light moisture spot on the back of this proof. This is a great historical item, destined to enter another great proof collection." The second description read, "This back proof was printed on India paper and mounted on light card stock. It doesn't exhibit any folds or creases, but a hint of adhesive is detected between the proof and backing." PMG has graded both fascinating items quite close to our original grades.
