    One of Only 13 in Private Hands

    Fr. 160 $50 1880 Legal Tender PMG Very Fine 20.
    A rare Friedberg number with a mere seventeen pieces recorded in the latest census. Even that number is deceptively high, as four of the listed notes are permanently impounded in government holdings, two in the Smithsonian, and two in the vaults of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco. This piece does have a couple of very minor repairs, but the colors are bold for the grade and the note has retained considerable eye appeal. Our consignor obtained this note from a CAA sale back in 1998, and it has remained off the market since that lone appearance.
    From the Coral Gables Collection, Part III

    Estimate: $8,500 - up.
