    Beautiful Fr. 160 1880 $50 Legal Tender

    Fr. 160 $50 1880 Legal Tender PMG Choice Extremely Fine 45.
    Last offered in April 2006 where it was described, "Of the fifteen known Fr. 160s, four are permanently impounded in government hands, and several others are unknown as to their whereabouts or have been off the market for decades. This piece has the full appearance of an Uncirculated note with brilliant colors, excellent margins, and near-perfect centering of both sides. The bright Orange Seal contrasts beautifully with the deep-blue serial numbers. This note is in contention with two other pieces for the honor of finest known, and if it is not the finest, it cannot be off by more than a hair. A rare and important note...." Since then a few other examples have been reported, but this piece remains one of the nicest known for this issue.
