    Newly Discovered Fr. 24 - Possibly Finest Known

    Fr. 24 $1 1875 Legal Tender Choice New. By far the finest Fr. 24 that we have ever handled and one of only seventeen examples known to the hobby. This note is new to the census. Fr. 24 is the scarcest of the 1875 A through E series (Fr. numbers 21 through 25.) It's a beautifully clean note that would grade Gem were it not for a rather tight bottom margin. This is only the fifth Fr. 24 that we have handled. The highest grade example we sold prior to this piece was an XF in May of 1998 which realized $4675. It's been quite a while since a really nice Fr. 24 was available. Anyone desiring to own this piece should be prepared for some rather serious bidding. Only one other Fr. 24 is listed in the census as being uncirculated, and that piece has been off the market since 1991.
