    Extremely Rare Fr. 330 $50 1891 Silver Certificate

    Fr. 330 $50 1891 Silver Certificate PMG Choice Fine 15.
    The first type for 1891 $50 Silver Certificates and a significant rarity. Although the face layout differs from that of 1880, Edward Everett remains as the right-side portrait alongside a small red treasury seal. The green back is in the open style like other denominations in the 1891 series. There are only seven recorded examples in Track & Price, one of which is held by the San Francisco Federal Reserve Bank Collection. Until our November 2020 Mike Coltrane Part 1 sale, this Friedberg number had not been offered since 2013. Remarkably, Mike owned a third of the publicly held population of this type. It has been a generation since the present note was last sold, and it is now certified for the first time. PMG notes a "Tear Repair," seen from the back. Ex: our Currency Auctions of America, May 2000 sale, lot 1502. Another rarity from Mike's collection.
    From The Mike Coltrane Collection.

    Estimate: $6,000 - $9,000.
