    Elusive Fr. 152 PMG VF 25

    Fr. 152 $50 1874 Legal Tender PMG Very Fine 25.
    A note that was brought into our hobby with the discovery of the Oat Bin Hoard outside of Kansas City, Missouri in 1966 by Howard Carter, MD. Our consignor won it at auction in 1993 and kept it for 25 years. This is one of 48 serial numbers listed in Track & Price for Fr. 152. We also see that it is plated on page 72 of the Chambliss-Hessler reference. The back label states that it has been trimmed, but our ruler proves that it has near perfect centering within balanced margins. We did offer two Fr. 152 notes at the VF 25 grade level at our April 2017 auction. The PMG 25 piece with a minor repair brought $6,168.75 and the PCGS 25 with an edge tear at top left left realized $9,400. Our estimate was $7,500 for both examples then and we will use it once more.
