    Rare Fr. 1190

    Fr. 1190 $50 1882 Gold Certificate Fine. Only five Fr. 1190s are known to exist, one of which is permanently impounded in the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco. Of the known notes, the highest grade example is an Extra Fine, which we sold in January of 1999 for $18,700. The other four pieces all grade Very Good or Fine. This note has some extremely minor, consummately well-done restorations at the outer edges, but it is free from internal problems. Needless to say, Fr. 1190 is a prohibitively difficult note to obtain in any grade. When we last sold this piece in May 2000, it brought $13,200. In today's much stronger market, we expect this piece to easily realize. . .
