    Attractive Fr. 133 $20 1880 Legal Tender

    Fr. 133 $20 1880 Legal Tender PMG Very Fine 30.
    An attractive example of this very scarce 1880 $20 Legal Tender type with less than 30 known. The seal at the right is now large, red, and without spikes. This is a pleasing, mid-level grade example with limited circulation and the eye appeal of superior condition. One of the lower serial numbers cited on the census. Perfect for the grade assigned with even margins and bold colors. Mike amazingly owned four Fr.133 notes. This equals, or perhaps, exceeds his PMG Very Fine 25 note that realized $3,120 in our first Coltrane sale. Ex: our Currency Auctions of America, September 1996 sale, lot 1262 (realized $1,430).
    From The Mike Coltrane Collection.

    Estimate: $2,000 - $3,000.
