    Fr. 1196 $50 1882 Gold Certificate Choice Very Fine. Fewer than two dozen examples are known of this number, the majority of which grade below this one. We known of only one distinctly finer example, an About New. It always amazes us that notes of this rarity sell for these levels. This piece, which could easily be the second or third finest known example out of a total population in the low twenties, will likely sell for only a few dollars more than what a Fr. 1197 (with over 110 known examples) would realize. This piece is a solid, problem-free beauty, with super colors, bright paper and original surfaces.
