    PCGS Superb 67PPQ Fr. 16 $1 1862 Legal - Tied for the Finest Known

    Fr. 16 $1 1862 Legal Tender PCGS Superb Gem New 67PPQ.
    An outstanding example of this early $1 Legal that, while not at all rare in the lower grades, even at the 65 level, is rare in the extreme at the Superb level. It is one of only two pieces graded at this level by either service with none finer. This beauty has incredible margins for the type, with three jumbo margins and a fourth margin that is small only by comparison, as the smallest margin on this note is broader than the broadest margin on most examples of this design. The colors are spectacular, and the note even has its original embossing, a feature that is seldom seen on this early type. The unusually wide top margin contains the green plate number 39. A lovely piece of currency.
