    Description

    Fr. 161 $50 1880 Legal Tender CGA Gem Uncirculated 67. The note is broadly margined and is as pretty as a picture. This classic design, with its large brown seal, blue serial numbers and striking vignette of America, is one of our favorite pieces of currency. Fewer than sixty pieces are known of this number in all grades combined, including those in museum and government hands. This note comes from the run that has supplied most all of the high-grade examples of this beautiful type. A number of pieces have been on the market in recent years, realizing in the $15,000-$25,000 range, depending in part on the note's quality, and in part on the number of bidders. This one certainly appears to have the quality. The number of bidders will be decided in September.
