    Spectacular 1869 Rainbow Fifty - Possibly Finest Known

    Fr. 151 $50 1869 Legal Tender Gem New. In all our sales, we've handled only eleven Fr. 151's, and only a single uncirculated example: a CGA-65 in May of 2002 that realized $89,125. This note is certainly the equal, if not the superior, of that piece. It's one of only four uncirculated examples listed in the Gengerke reference out of the 56 pieces known to him. It was last on the market in the 2000 Memphis sale where it realized $82,500. The note is hugely margined, with spectacular color, strictly original paper surfaces and no flaws, repairs, problems or impediments of any kind. A great example of a significant, rare and very beautiful one-number type.
