    Description

    Fr. 140 $20 1880 Legal Tender Superb Gem New. It is doubtful that many nicer Fr. 140s exist than this well-margined Gem. The paper quality is flawless, and the remarkable eye appeal is enhanced by the bright, unfaded colors. A small run of notes in high grade exists around this serial number range, and this is certainly among the very nicest. This piece traces its history back to the famed Eliasberg Collection. On top of its broad margins and perfect colors, it also has every bit of its easily seen original embossing. A fabulous type note.
