    Fr. 53 $2 1880 Legal Tender PMG About Uncirculated 50. Fr. 53 is rare in all grades with only about 40 examples enumerated in the census. This piece, though it carries the negative comment "Repaired", certainly is a winner in the eye-appeal department. The repair, whatever it may be, is far from obvious, and the note has the appearance of a higher-grade piece. PMG has graded only 7 examples of this number in total. The large red seal in combination with the deep blue serial number adds a nice splash of color to this handsome type. The Dauers have illustrated this note on page 64 of their book.
