    Brilliantly Colored Black Back Ten Dollar 1880 Silver Certificate

    Fr. 288 $10 1880 Silver Certificate PCGS Choice New 63.
    A truly beautiful Robert Morris Black Back 1880 Silver Certificate that would have graded far higher with slightly more generous margins. The colors, inking, eye appeal, and paper surfaces are all as nice as any we have ever seen. The 63 grade is dead-on accurate, due solely to margin size. While not scarce in the real sense, with just under 100 examples enumerated in Track & Price, it is far scarcer than its type mate Fr. 289 which has almost three times as many examples known. An ideal note to represent the type as no additional value attaches for rarity, when in reality it is a far scarcer number.
