    Fr. 151 $50 1869 Legal Tender Very Fine. This note was last on the market in our May 1997 catalog where it was described, "From the James Wade Collection and later from a 1971 Rarcoa sale. It has previously been graded Extra Fine which we find a hair generous; we're grading it Very Fine. It's a well margined and very attractive note. Although about 50 notes are known of this type, they rarely seem to cross the market. Ten of them are impounded in government hands or museums and quite a few others are simply reported and have not reached the public market in decades." In that sale, this note reached $17,500 on an estimate of $15,000-up. The note is totally free of repairs, restorations or problems of any kind and the Rainbow colors remain quite strong.
