    Fr. 1192 1882 $50 Gold Certificate Very Fine. A newly discovered example of a note with a very short printing of 100,000 pieces. Only fifteen examples are known, and four of those are permanently impounded in museum or government hands. None of the known pieces are fully uncirculated, with the finest known examples grading Extremely Fine, one of which we sold in May of 1998 for $44,000. This note is a clean, brightly colored example, with strictly original surfaces and no problems of any kind. The orange color of the overprint on the face, and the bright orange of the back, remain undiminished in spite of the note's circulation, as does the bold large brown spiked shield placed at the very center of the face. Examples of this number are found only in the very finest of collections, and this piece gives one more collector the opportunity to add this handsome type.
