    Description

    Fr. 129 $20 1878 Legal Tender CGA Gem Uncirculated 66. This is a very pretty example of a number run of these that was saved, a group that accounts for virtually all of the high grade pieces known. This spectacular example has incredibly broad margins, perfect centering on both face and back, and we see no reason why CGA did not grade this piece even higher. Part of the plate number 6 is visible in the broad top margin. The colors are rich and deep, and we expect numerous type collectors to express bidding interest in this high grade piece.
