    Fr. 126 $20 1863 Legal Tender Choice Extremely Fine. Fr. 126 is quite a scarce number, with only 20 examples known. CAA has sold only six, and none of them have been even close to the grade of this piece. In fact, only two notes in the census grade higher than this note. The note is unusually well margined for the type, with strong ink color. It's printed on the naturally darker paper that is sometimes seen for these early Twenties, and it is distinguished by a very large number of small wood chips embedded in the paper, much like the red and blue fibers which were used on later issues. The note has a number of folds, but they're all extremely light and difficult to see, and the paper surfaces are fully original.
