    Fr. 158 $50 1880 Legal Tender CGA Gem Uncirculated 65. Less then ten examples of Fr.158 are known to exist, but unlike the great majority of rarities, most of them are in very high grade. Only 20 thousand examples of Fr. 158 were printed. Only a single circulated note is known, but a group of seven consecutive uncirculated pieces have survived. This note is the highest of that serial number run. Two notes from this run are permanently impounded: one resides in the Charlotte branch of the Richmond Federal Reserve bank, and the second is in the ANA Museum. This particular note most recently was on the market in Lyn Knights December 2, 2000 sale where it realized $33,000. The colors of this piece are spectacular, as are the margins. The centering of both sides is perfect.
