    $100 Rainbow Legal Tender

    Fr. 168 $100 1869 Legal Tender PMG Choice Fine 15 Net. This $100 Rainbow realized $11,000 when it was first offered at public auction back in 1997. Since then about a third of the surviving pieces have been offered for sale, though there have been no appearances since late 2007 when a PMG Extremely Fine 40 EPQ sold for $184,000 as part of the Dr. Edward and Joanne Dauer Collection. This piece is an attractive Fine, with a bright swath of anti-counterfeiting blue color and strong design details. Some repairs are noted by PMG, all of which were executed by a professional and are really only visible if the note is candled.
