    Fr. 150a - One of Only Seven Known

    Fr. 150a $50 1863 Legal Tender Fine. One of only seven notes listed, one of which is in the San Francisco Fed. This one has been professionally restored at the top and bottom edges, but none of the design elements have been touched by the restoration. The colors, particularly the sensitive red and green inks, are amazingly bright, imparting the look of a higher-grade example to this very rare note. Only two of the other known notes grade higher than this piece, with only one uncirculated note known. The only known unc. auctioned in Memphis 2000 for $176,000. We sold this note in May of 2000 for $10,450, a number that should be easily eclipsed tonight.
