    Choice Fr. 125 $20 1862 Legal

    Fr. 125 $20 1862 Legal Tender PMG Extremely Fine 40.
    An attractive circulated example of this very thoughtfully rendered design. The second obligation back was introduced on this major type. There are just over 50 notes confirmed currently, and this New Series 2 is one of the finest. There are apparently no notes reported in About Uncirculated or better. PMG notes "Minor Repairs," but the eye-appeal is wonderful. Superb green color is seen on both sides. Ex: LKCA, December 2017 sale, lot 10870. This is another "sleeper" rarity from the early Legal Tender notes, and its strong condition recommends it highly.
    From The Mike Coltrane Collection.
